Living Matrimony

Living Matrimony is a dynamic ministry geared to married couples in the parish. The idea is simple. It is a gathering for married couples to take advantage of free babysitting, to spend some time in community and with your spouse. Moreover, to get to the heart of what it means to truly live out our vocation as married people in the church & the world today.

Natural Family Planning

Natural Family Planning (NFP) is an umbrella term for certain methods used to achieve and postpone pregnancies. These methods, also called Fertility Appreciation or Fertility Awareness methods, are based on the observation of naturally occurring signs of the fertile phase of a woman’s fertility cycle. Couples using NFP to achieve pregnancy engage in intercourse during the woman’s fertile phase. Couples wishing to postpone pregnancy simply abstain from sexual relations during the time of fertility. No drugs, devices or surgical procedures are used in the practice of NFP.NFP reflects the dignity of the human person within the context of marriage and family life, promotes openness to life, and recognizes the value of every child. By respecting the love-giving and life-giving natures of marriage, NFP enriches the bond between husband and wife. We are in need of couples willing instruct other couples in NFP.
