Step 5: Natural Family Planning Instruction

IMPORTANT: You must attend God’s Plan for a Joy-Filled Marriage before taking NFP classes.

When: Begin your NFP course 4 to 6 months before your wedding.

Why: NFP helps you and your fiancé understand and respect each other’s fertility.

What: To ensure you have the tools to plan your family effectively and in accord with God’s plan for marriage, you will have the opportunity to learn about fertility awareness and the natural spacing for children by taking a full course in an approved Natural Family Planning method.

When and Where: The diocese has classes scheduled in over 30 locations in the diocese. A course is 10 to 12 weeks long and is divided into 4 to 6 sessions, with each session lasting 1 to 2 1⁄2 hours, depending on the method and learning mode selected.
