“Celebrate and Revere God’s Vision of Human Sexuality” Natural Family Planning Awareness Week, celebrated July 22-28, is an opportunity to participate in this national educational campaign. This year’s theme is “Faithfully Yours”. Each year, the Natural Family Planning Program of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops offers basic supportive materials, including a poster, for this week. Individual dioceses offer a variety of educational forums in the local church to focus attention on Natural Family Planning methods and Church teachings which support their use in marriage. 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. For further information, contact nfp@usccb.org.
