We are the Syracuse Diocese Natural Family Planning Ministry. Our mission is to promote Natural Family Planning within the Catholic parishes of the Syracuse diocese, and to the communities surrounding them, as well as to foster and grow an encouraging community for those in our diocese who are currently practicing NFP.
“Periodic continence, that is, the methods of birth regulation based on self-observation and the use of infertile periods, is in conformity with the objective criteria of morality. These methods respect the bodies of the spouses, encourage tenderness between them, and favor the education of an authentic freedom”
Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2370
“The moral law obliges … [husband and wife] in every case to … respect the biological laws inscribed in their person. It is precisely this respect which makes legitimate, at the service of responsible procreation, the use of natural methods of regulating fertility.”
Pope St. John Paul II, Evangelium vitae, no. 97
“Supported by science, experience has confirmed the educational value of Natural Family Planning in contributing to an integrated vision of sexuality, marriage and responsible procreation.”
Pope St. John Paul II, Address to Participants in a Course Sponsored by the Centre for Studies and Research on the Natural Regulation of Fertility, 1993
