CANFP Conference
Past Event

Faithful to God’s Design

July 27

-28, 2018

About the Event

Hel at Ontario Convention Center. July 26 Pre-conferences hosted by CANFP, IIRRM, AND AAFCP. First National Conference and 50th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae.

What does the Catholic Church teach about the meaning of love and life? What does it mean to be Faithful to God’s Design? What can we learn by revisiting the teachings articulated in Humanae Vitae, arguably the most controversial encyclical in the history of the Catholic Church, with the hindsight and experience of these last 50 years, that can inspire and inform us now? Over forty experts explore the meaning of sex, examine the effects of contraception / abortion / sterilization, review the development of methods of natural family planning, and link the concepts of the theology of the body — “Since man cannot find true happiness for which he yearns with his whole being, unless he respects the laws inscribed in his nature by God.” Pope Paul VI, Humanae Vitae.

CANFP conducts varied outreach programs to the community at large, in addition to serving our members (NFP users, teachers, and advocates).

CANFP provides education programs tailored to the audience, not only on Natural Family Planning, but on the wide variety of topics related to it.

Programs can be continuing education for NFP Professionals, introductory information for a lay audience of youth or adults new to the topic, or specifically tailored to the interests of a professional audience, such as educators, physicians, or clergy. Content is faith based or secular, whichever is suitable for situation.

CANFP offers a variety of resources for those just discovering Natural Family Planning, as well as to meet the varied needs of our CANFP Members. Most resources are available to any visitors to our site. Some resources do ask you to register as a site user in order to access them, others are available only to CANFP Members.

CANFP statewide conferences, regional events offered in collaboration with local partners, events featuring CANFP speakers, or exhbit, as well as other events throughout the state of interest to our NFP community.  Come meet one of our experts at one of these events or book a speaker for your own upcoming event.
