New Video Explains Benefits of Natural Family Planning
Married couples speak about the practical, relational, and spiritual benefits of Natural Family Planning in a new video.
NFP educators Dr. Jennifer and Matthew DeMarco introduce an effective, simple, and natural approach to family planning. Today’s NFP is almost 100% effective. It uses modern scientific techniques to determine when a woman is fertile or infertile, so married couples can achieve or safely postpone pregnancy. Working in harmony with nature, this approach removes any artificial barriers to the full, free, faithful, and fruitful union of sacramental marriage.
The DeMarcos are joined by Chris and Dan Volpe and Damon and Melanie Owens, married couples who share their own experience of discovering, learning, and living NFP. These couples give a heartfelt, real-life witness to its effectiveness, challenges, and many benefits—practical, relational, and spiritual—as they cooperate with God’s natural plan for married sexuality.
The video is contemporary, engaging, and shot in documentary style. It is ideal for Catholic marriage preparation programs or for anyone preparing for a Catholic wedding or marriage in the Catholic Church.
Classes in the Sympto-Thermal Method of Natural Family Planning are offered to married and engaged couples and can be taken at 15 locations in the Chicago, IL Archdiocese and surrounding area, including southeast Milwaukee and northwest Indiana. A homestudy course is also available at http://www.CCLI.org.
The next class in the Chicago area will begin Wed., Sept. 30, 2009 at 7 pm at St. James Parish in Arlington Heights. Call Matt & Anne McClure at 630-843-1066. For more information, go to http://www.naturalfamilyplanningchicago.com.
