Chris and Susan Lorge were recently certified by the Couple to Couple League International to teach natural family planning (NFP). The Lorge’s are members of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Parish in Absecon where Chris is the choir director and Susan runs the playgroup and is a member of the online NFP Women’s Group based in South Jersey.
They also teach Bradley Method prepared childbirth classes. In addition to their various ministries and busy family schedule, Chris and Susan found time to complete the NFP teacher certification process and are eager to share the good news of natural family planning with engaged and married couples.
The Lorge’s took an NFP course eight years ago and “have wanted to help promote NFP ever since then.”
Cecilia LeChevallier, NFP coordinator for the Diocese of Camden, noted that a recent NFP course attendee commented, “This class was very helpful. I learned how to identify key signs of fertility and how to understand the language of my body.” Another couple sent comments a few months after they attended an NFP course: “We believe NFP fits our needs and our lifestyle. It definitely enhances the marriage relationship…. It was a great follow-up to our Pre-Cana classes.”
Chris and Susan Lorge will begin a new NFP course on Saturday, July 11; 2-4:30 p.m. at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church. The course is a series of three classes spaced about a month apart, and the other two dates are Aug. 8 and 29.
Another course will begin on Thursday, Sept. 24 in Voorhees. To register for the NFP courses, to find out when other NFP courses will be scheduled or for information about natural family planning, contact the diocesan NFP Office: 856-583-6120 or email@example.com
