Just a reminder that you are invited to a brainstorming session on fertility, on Tuesday 23rd January at 7 pm, at the Cardinal Winning Pro-Life Initiative. If you are able to attend, please let us know by email to firstname.lastname@example.org Also please pass on invitation to anyone else who may be interested.
50 years on from Humanae Vitae, we are all aware of the widespread scepticism and disregard of the Church’s teaching on family planning and artificial reproductive technology. There is need for a renewed effort to counter this scepticism and replace it with the joyful message of the gift of fertility.
We want to bring together the various groups and individuals interested in promoting the Church’s teaching on fertility, with the aim of co-ordinating our efforts to effectively promote an appreciation of fertility, counter the contraceptive mentality of society and promote a Catholic approach to infertility. We want to hear about what you are already doing and what ideas you have for the future.
We are looking to include ideas on any of the following areas:
· Education of children and young people- within families, schools and youth groups
· Marriage preparation
· NFP teaching and research
· Infertility and NaPro technology
· Increase awareness of NFP amongst healthcare students and professionals
· Resource bank and directory of services
Aware that the issues involved may take some preparation, if you have any resources you think it would be useful for other participants to know of in advance, please email back with a link to more information. These resources will be compiled into one email and sent out to participants in advance of the meeting.
