Catholic Adult Education
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a ministry through which interested adults go through a process of conversion to Jesus Christ and an initiation into the Catholic Church. As a precatechumeate, adults meet informally as a group to learn more about Catholic tradition and beliefs. After the Rite of Acceptance, catechumens and candidates for full communion must attend the Sunday Masses for the liturgy and are dismissed to the Ministry Center to continue their reflection on the Gospel as a group. Those who are called to the Easter sacraments celebrate the Rite of Election on the first Sunday of Lent and full initiation at the Easter Vigil.

Natural family planning (NFP) is fertility awareness, which is simply knowledge of a couple’s fertility. It is a means of reading the body’s signs of fertility and infertility; applying this knowledge is over 99% effective in postponing pregnancy. 

The two most common methods in the Toledo diocese are the Sympto-Thermal Method (STM) taught by the Couple to Couple League (CCL) and the Creighton Model Fertility Care System. 
The CCL method is a simpler and quicker method to learn and is ideal for most couples.
CCL offers online self-passed classes or live in person classes taught regularly at our parish by a local couple. 
For more information, visit ccli.org.

The Creighton Model can be helpful for women who have cycle issues, including PCOS, Endometriosis, heavy & painful periods, and more.
For more information on either method, contact Jeff or Bridget Bockey: 419-233-1600 .delphosnf[email protected].
1 in 6 couples will experience infertility at some point in their marriage.
If you or someone you know is struggling with infertility and are looking for a different approach to medical treatment, we are happy to share with you that there is a highly effective alternative to traditional medical procedures, such as IVF. This alternative is called  NaPro Technology. It doesn't violate our Catholic moral principles, and it is 2 -3 times more effective than IVF for treating infertility.  We are blessed to have NaPro physicians in our area, including a full NaPro Clinic.
