National NFP Awareness Week provides an opportunity to spread the word about Catholic teaching on marriage, conjugal love and responsible parenthood. Sharing basic information about the methods of NFP and why they support God's design for life and love is at the heart of this national campaign. Use the following resources to create articles for diocesan newspapers, websites, Facebook and media threads. Permission
is granted to reproduce these resources in print or electronically. For further questions,

A "general education" article that provides a brief explanation on Natural Family Planning. It also allows space for inserting additional text on where and how someone in your diocese might get more information on NFP or take a class. Be sure to include information on NFP distance education for couples who may not be able to attend local classes (see "NFP Provider Page" below for web contact information).
A collection of quotations taken from Catholic Church documents, NFP couple's witness testimonies, NFP pioneers and promoters. Insert some of these quotes in your parish bulletin!
