Humanae Vitae (1968-2018)  Celebrate God's Gift of Married Love!  "Celebrate and reverence God's vision of human sexuality." Natural Family Planning Awareness Week is a national educational campaign promoted by the USCCB.  The dates of Natural Family Planning Awareness Week highlight the anniversary of the papal encyclical Humanae Vitae (July 25) which articulates Catholic beliefs about human sexuality, conjugal love and responsible parenthood.  The dates also mark the feast of Saints Joachim and Anne (July 26), the parents of the Blessed Mother. The Office of Family Life offers free introductory sessions on NFP during the year for engaged couples and for all those interested in learning more about these methods.

Please consider speaking about NFP in your homily on July 21 or any other parish community settings, and encourage your parishioners to attend the NFP information session.
