This annual survey of diocesan NFP ministry (Profile)

  • Provides the U.S. bishops with a national view of diocesan NFP ministry and
  • Describes the unique character and needs of each diocesan NFP program.

The Profile form is divided into four areas

  1. General information (name of diocesan NFP coordinator, address, etc.)
  2. Program management (how the ministry is structured, e.g., which department it is located in, number of teachers, etc.)
  3. Budget
  4. Program service (what the program provides to the local church, e.g., which NFP methods are offered, how NFP is integrated in marriage preparation programs, etc.)

The data gathered in this survey identifies the strengths and weaknesses of diocesan NFP ministry both locally and nationally. It is an important instrument for directing the development of resources which will help to facilitate the growth of NFP ministry in the U.S. dioceses.
