The theme of NFP Awareness Week is “Love, Mercy, Life. Opening the Heart of Marriage.” The slogan was inspired by the Holy Father’s call for a Jubilee Year of Mercy, a special time of grace in the Church wherein all, including married couples and families, are invited to open their hearts more fully to the unconditional love, mercy and life Christ and the Church offer us.
The Diocese of Owensboro offers natural family planning resources to couples on our website. You can find instructors who can guide you through the process either via the Billings Ovulation Method or the Creighton Method.
