NFP Classes Now Offered In Spanish
ATLANTA--Having attended the Billings Ovulation Method Association Conference and Teacher Training Program last August in Colorado, three women of the archdiocese will begin teaching the Natural Family Planning method taught in over 100 countries worldwide.
Rose Marie Garcia-Carreras of St. Stephens Church, Lilburn, Denise Gunderson of St. Michael the Archangel Church, Woodstock, and Ana Milena Serna of St. Patricks Church, Norcross, received training as Billings Ovulation Method teachers. Garcia-Carreras and Serna, in addition to working with English speaking couples, will teach Natural Family Planning in Spanish. The 30-year-old method was developed by Dr. John and Dr. Lyn Billings.
At the August conference Archbishop Charles Chaput of Denver encouraged attendees to continue the important work of Natural Family Planning.
Natural Family Planning is unique in that it enables users to work with the body and to see fertility as a reality to live. To arrange for classes call Lynn Crutchfield at the archdiocesan Office of Family Concerns at (404) 888-7818.
