The Department of Marriage and Family Ministry offers a nationally certified program to train couples or individuals in Natural Family Planning. You can be certified to teach either The Ovulation Method or The Sympto-Thermal Method. The program is offered once every 2 years, with a series beginning in June 2015.
The first 4 sessions are held from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. The 5th session is a day long seminar where you will be joined by veteran teachers for continuing education opportunities.
Once you have completed the classroom portion of the Institute you will be required to teach at least 6 couples to be fully certified. Cost for the entire training is $295.00. It is recommended that a couple be sponsored by their parish. You will then offer classes in that parish, as well as offer Information Sessions or speak at a Pre-Cana if needed.
If you feel you are being called to the NFP Ministry, please contact your pastor to inquire about sponsorship. Please feel free to call Kathy Patton at 216-334-2973 with any questions you may have.
