NFP Classes in Manhattan & Yonkers

Natural Family Planning Classes

Take advantage of this great opportunity to learn Natural Family Planning close to home! NFP teaches couples to understand their fertility so that they can accurately plan or postpone pregnancy. Specific studies of NFP have indicated that its reliability is over 99% when properly taught and used. Moreover, NFP involves both spouses in decision making and responsibility and so it promotes mutual love and affection between husband and wife and encourages better communication, deeper intimacy and greater understanding.
There will be Natural Family Planning classes offered:
  • In the Lincoln Park section of Yonkers beginning on the evening of
    Wednesday, October 3rd
  • At St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan beginning on the evening of
