We have updated the Diocesan NFP page of the Marriage and Family Life section of the website. Visit www.dcdiocese.org/nfp to see an updated listing of teachers, classes that are happening in the diocese, and online classes that are available.  There is also an excellent video from the Archdiocese of Milwaukee posted that is a wonderful introduction to what NFP is and why couples should consider using it in their marriage.  It is a great resource to share with engaged and married couples in your parish.
