Promoting Sex that is 100% Natural, Sustainable, and Life Giving

CANFP advocates and promotes NFP through educational programs and services, in person, virtually, electronically, and through social media, while uniting and supporting those personally and professionally involved in all methods of NFP. Through support and service, members actively partner in the work of CANFP, including:

• CANFP NEWS : all original content produced and distributed quarterly
• CONSULTS, information, support, and referrals to services
•–website resource for NFP in California—Professional Directory (NFP teachers, physicians, and clergy) in California–Over 1,000 Questions and responses in popular Ask the Expert
• celebrating 50 years of Humanae Vitae—popular and high traffic features include over 50 hours of video content with national speakers, brief personal testimonies, and a professionally produced video of HV Heroes—all FREE
• EXHIBIT outreach providing education and support annually at the West Coast Walk for Life, as the only NFP exhibitor at the Los Angeles Religious Education Congress, as well as other national/state/regional events
• EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES, including booklets, pamphlets, CDS/DVDS
• SPEAKERS on NFP and related topics for national, state, regional, and parish events and meetings

Most importantly, the heart of CANFP lies in the relationships, as we journey—sometimes through brief encounters, other times forming relationships that span generations of families—with those seeking to live God’s Design for Love and Life:

• COUPLES seeking to integrate in their marriage
• SINGLES seeking health in mind, body and spirit
• COUPLES striving to restore reproductive health and conceive a child
• CLERGY striving to live personal holiness while guiding couples on that path
• PHYSICIANS seeking to provide advanced medical options for couples that respect their dignity
• YOUTH hungering to know and live the beauty of being created in God’s image
• NFP TEACHERS seeking continuing education and community

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.

CANFP depends on the gifts, talents, and generosity of our members and supporters. The success of our mission depends on the collaboration of our members.
