August 6 and 9 mark the bombing of Hiroshima and

Nagasaki. These days Ukraine continues to be bombed.

Some bombs blast property and health. But in marriage,

sometimes the “bombs” can be emotional. Are

there any crude comments you’d like to stop?


“What’s so sacred about dinner? It happens every day.

We face one another. We eat. We talk. It doesn’t matter

that some of the talk is trivial or full of complaints.

We share our day, warts and all. It doesn’t matter if

the food is plain or even unappetizing. We have food.

It doesn’t even matter if we come to the table angry

with one another or if we get angry as a result of being

together. We have to deal with the people who

push our buttons – and then push beyond it. We might

even find the grace to forgive.” (Raising Kids Who Will

Make a Difference by Susan Vogt)

The weekend is designed to help married couples communicate more intimately in order to deepen and enrich their relationship. The weekend is free from everyday routines, distractions and tensions. An atmosphere is created where the husband and wife can concentrate exclusively on each other in a private confidential environment.

A series of presentations that touch on many aspects of marriage is given by three couples and a Catholic priest.

After each presentation the couple has time in the privacy of their own room for personal sharing using the communication techniques learned on the weekend. There are no"group discussions." The weekend starts at 8:00 p.m. on Friday and runs until 4:30 p.m. on Sunday. All faith expressions are welco

Natural Family Planning:




What is it? The NFPI home-study course is a convenient way for couples to complete an NFP course for self-instruction and as a normal part of preparation for marriage.


What will you do and learn?

In the NFPI Home Study Course, you will-

* Study the NFPI manual, Natural Family Planning: The Complete Approach.

* Learn how to observe, record, and interpret the signs of female fertility.

* Learn Catholic teaching about love, marriage, sexuality and responsible parenthood.

* Understand that teaching in terms of the Christian marriage covenant.


What's the process?

You will complete a series of three tests based upon the NFPI manual, Natural Family Planning: The Complete Approach. You will be sent one test at a time. You will answer the questions or apply rules based on the readings. After you have successfully completed the first test, you will be sent the second test. When you successfully complete the second, you will be sent the third test. After the three tests are completed, you will be asked to interpret two charts.
