“Trust… God has a plan for your marriage” is the theme for this year’s observance of Natural Family Planning (NFP) Awareness Week, a time set aside by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to remind us to “celebrate and reverence God’s vision of human sexuality.” Married couples who use NFP report many benefits, including: better communication between spouses, increased patience and emotional maturity, and growth in respect for God’s gift of fertility. Information on NFP is available at www.usccb.org/prolife/issues/nfp. NFP classes are available through the Marriage and Family Life Office.
