This page was created to foster an awareness of pro-life/pro-family issues and to promote, respect and reverence human life at all stages of development from conception to natural death. This is accomplished by using information and resources available through the Archdiocesan Family Life Office, the U.S. Catholic Bishop's Conference and other state and local pro-life organizations. We hope to educate the parish on critical legislative pro-life activities, and encourage prayer in the parish and school for a greater respect for the gift of human life.

NATURAL FAMILY PLANNING
Natural Family Planning Awareness Week is a national educational campaign. The Natural Family Planning Program of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops develops a poster each year with basic supportive materials. It is the individual dioceses however, that offer a variety of educational formats in the local church to focus attention on Natural Family Planning methods and Church teachings which support their use in marriage.
