Bishop’s Statement


As our Church observes the 49th anniversary of the encyclical “Humanae Vitae” (July 25), we also celebrate Natural Family Planning (NFP) Awareness Week July 23-29. The practice of Natural Family Planning enables couples to live out God’s design for married love by fostering authentic communication, openness to life and mutual respect within marriage. In a manner consistent with the teaching of Blessed Pope Paul VI, NFP helps to promote responsible parenthood while fostering the unique vocation of husbands and wives to bring human life into the world. I encourage all married couples to reflect on the teaching of “Humanae Vitae” and learn more about the benefits of Natural Family Planning. I join with my brother bishops in saying: “It’s Time! Say ‘Yes’ to God’s Plan for Married Love.”
