NFP CLASSES

Natural Family Planning classes will begin on Thursday, September 11th at 7:00 pm at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Gardendale. Discover a natural way to postpone or achieve a pregnancy. NFP is based on an awareness of a woman’s fertility. It’s medically safe, 99% effective in postponing pregnancy, very low cost, often has a positive effect on the couple’s marriage, and is morally acceptable according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
