Our mission is to assist Catholic Couples and Adult Catholic women to prepare for and to live virtuous marriages in full harmony with Catholic Church teaching. We focus on the virtue of chastity. We teach God’s plan for married couples. We teach that Fertility Awareness and Natural Family Planning is the superior alternative to contraceptives. We believe that Catholics should be informed on how to attain the happiness and joy of living a chaste family life without charge.
