Beloved Couples (Marriage Enrichment)

Beloved Couples strives to help nurture married couples through our Catholic faith by understanding the true meaning of the sacrament of Marriage and how to live the self-sacrificial love of Christ day to day, in imitation of Christ who was crucified for his beloved spouse (the Church). We gather monthly for a date night with other couples to share and learn about our faith, to learn from and help each other to avoid pitfalls that can hinder our married lives and to hopefully grow in intimacy with our spouses in our vocation of love.

Natural Family Planning

   Al & Adrienne Keogler

Natural Family Planning is a holistic, completely natural and highly effective method of both postponing and achieving pregnancy, fully in accord with the dignity of the human person. Through NFP, married couples discover God’s beautiful design of human fertility and His plan for married love. Couples learn the science of their fertility and to chart the biological markers on a daily basis. They can then read those signs in light of their prayerful discernment of God’s plan for their unique family.

Classes are available for engaged couples, married couples who are newlywed, postpartum or those entering menopause.

Courses run twice a year. It takes a full series of 3 classes, spaced one month apart, to properly learn the method. To learn more about NFP or to register, please visit the Couple to Couple League International website: ccli.org
