An Introduction to St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and Natural Family Planning
Why do we want be married?
How can we thrive in our marriages?
What is Natural Family Planning?
Renewing the Covenant is a presentation for engaged or married-couples about Saint John Paul II’s Theology of the Body and Natural Family Planning. We explore these two questions: “Why do you want to be married?” and “How can we thrive in our marriage?” To help answer these questions we will introduce Theology of the Body and how we are called to reflect God’s love with our bodies.
We will also share the basic concepts of Natural Family Planning and the science behind it. NFP is a holistic approach to family planning. Once learned it can be used to achieve or postpone a preg-nancy. NFP is not a contraceptive as it does nothing to suppress or block conception. All natural methods are scientifically based on the woman’s pattern of fertility and infertility. Couples learn to understand, respect and appreciate their combined fertility. Today’s NFP is not the old Rhythm Method of the past. With proper instruction and following the few simple rules the methods are 98-99% effective.
This presentation can be offered for your parish in a 90 min. presentation. We also have a 30 min. presentation that fits well within a Pre-Cana Day. Call Kathy Patton, the NFP Coordinator to schedule Renewing the Covenant in your parish. 216-334-2973.
