Natural Family Planning International: Please Donate

Sunday, June 23rd, 2019

Many organizations are in need of donations and we are certainly one of them.  Our costs are minimal.  Our only paid worker is our full-time Executive Director.

The rest of the work for our Humanae Vitae apostolate is done by volunteers.  Teaching couples through the online Home Study Course, updating our Facebook page, the promotion of Humanae Vitae, and teaching classroom courses is gladly done by volunteers.

Please donate.  We need the financial support.  We are thankful for what you can do to help our ministry.

PS:  On June 12, 2019, a couple completed the Home Study Course.  Here is the comment from the male, a self-identified agnostic, regarding the course:
Thanks so much.  I will sincerely recommend this course to my friends that are due to wed! I think its helpful information to anyone even if they are not Catholic or if they are male! I think it is important to know the natural signs the body gives to indicate periods of fertility and infertility, rather than forcing it to be a certain way via the pill or other unnatural methods. I had no idea there were all of these signs that can be used! I also liked how this book not only talks natural ways of avoiding pregnancy, but also how to naturally increase chances of a successful pregnancy. These will probably come in handy down the road 🙂 Also I do like how this book gives a background into the Catholic teachings and morality regarding different aspects of sex and having children. I think the belief system aligns with what I feel internally is virtuous and brings positive energy into the world.  Thanks again.


Natural Family Planning International: Please Donate

NFP International is unique among NFP providers in that we teach the covenant meaning of the marriage act, for better and for worse (including the imagined worse of possible pregnancy). We also teach how hormonal contraceptives can be abortifacient and increase health risks for the woman.

NFPI is also unique in teaching about ecological breastfeeding. That’s the full-time breastfeeding that gives the mother 14-15 months on average of natural infertility. We also ensure that our students know how healthy breastfeeding is for both mother and baby.

The third strand of our “Triple Strand” is the Dr. Konald Prem method of charting, which is very versatile and comprehensive.

NFPI is a small organization, and we have a small budget. We ask for $80 for a couple to take our course. The number of students that we teach is not enough to cover our expenses, and so we would like to ask you to donate to NFP International. The reason we teach couples is because it is beneficial for them to know the above information. It is our small share of promoting a culture of life and a civilization of love.  By sending a monetary gift to NFPI, you are contributing to a good start for our student couples who are preparing to enter into marriage.

Please consider sending a donation to NFP International. We are helping couples know more about God’s plan for marriage and family life. Also, please pray for us, and know that we are praying for God to bless you and your loved ones.

PS:  Sheila:  On June 9, 2019, I received this comment about our course:  I have gained a significant amount of knowledge through taking this course. I am agnostic, so I learned a good amount about Catholicism and the beliefs towards sex and children. Furthermore, I have not learned anything regarding menstruation/cycles since my middle school sexual education days, so this was great. Especially new to me were all of the methods to tell exactly what part of the cycle a woman is in. I think I will be able to help [my wife] with her fertility and her nursing!
We appreciate any donation so we can continue helping couples.
