NFP (Natural Family Planning ) Ministry follows God’s design for spacing and planning family size. It cooperates with God and recognizes sexuality and fertility as a God given gift. Natural Family Planning increases communication and enhances romance and intimacy. This can be seen in the substantially lower divorce rate which is less than 5% compared to the national divorce rate of 50%. St. John Neumann church promotes and encourages married and engaged couples to learn and use the method for family spacing and size.

The SJN Natural Family Planning ministry is dedicated to providing education, programs and support to individuals and couples who are seeking to live out the Catholic Church’s teaching on sexuality through the use of Natural Family Planning. We offer support through our NFP faith sharing group and through practical instruction in the use of NFP.

Here are links to local physicians who we know are supporters of couples who use NFP:

Dr. Alan Murnane and Dr. Eric Overdorf
Westar OB/GYN, 65 E. Granville St., Sunbury (Sunbury Square),
Drs. Murnane and Overdorf are members of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG),
