Natural Family Planning - Phoenix, Arizona

Natural Family Planning (NFP) Course

NFP courses in the greater Phoenix area are being offered in person, or in a virtual classroom format. As parishes are opening to host live courses in the upper regions of the diocese (Flagstaff, Kingman, and Bullhead City), NFP courses are offered both virtually and in person. There is also an option to take a self-paced online NFP course.

The Natural Family Planning course will acquaint you with both masculine and feminine fertility and how to recognize the signs of fertility in a woman’s body. It will also help you apply this knowledge to your own situation.

Since you are learning a new skill based on fertility awareness, all courses will take 10 to 12 weeks to complete. Depending on the method chosen, you will attend between 4 and 6 sessions, ranging from 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours for each session. Each method has a different schedule of classes and individual follow up for the remainder of the course. This is Step 5 in our marriage prep process.

In the Diocese of Phoenix, we offer classes in a variety of NFP methods so that you can decide what method best fits you. For some couples, however the decision may come down to practical considerations such as the need to join the next available series of classes in order to meet marriage prep deadlines.

You may register below for the diocesan courses or the online self-paced program. Additionally, MorningStar OBGYN in the East Valley offers NFP Courses for the Creighton Method and FAF Ovulation Method. Visit their website and contact them for more information.
