What is Natural Family Planning?
Natural Family Planning provides couples a safe effective means to achieve or avoid pregnancy and gain understanding of their gift of fertility.
The NFP Family Network of Buffalo offers support and fellowship to couples in the teachings of the Catholic faith, specifically in the areas of marriage, family and openness to life. The group sponsors couples nights out, theology-enrichment meetings, marriage enrichment evenings and family events.
For more information, please contact the Network at firstname.lastname@example.org. For information regarding introductory sessions, contact Catholic Fertility Care Centers of WNY at Sister’s Hospital at 716-862-1944, Mercy Hospital at 716-828-2438, or Mt.

Prayer of Reparation
God and Father of Life, You have created every human person, and have opened the way for each to have eternal life. We live in the shadow of death. Tens of millions of your children have been killed because of the Roe vs. Wade decision legalizing abortion. Father, have mercy on us. Heal or Land and accept our offering of prayer and penance. In your love for us, Turn back the scourge of abortion. May each of us exult in hearts full of hope And hands full of mercy and work together to build a culture of life.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
On Friday, March 11, 2016, the “Stations of the Cross for Life” were led by the Our Lady of Pompeii Respect Life Committee. The Meditations were based on those celebrated by Pope John Paul II on Good Friday 1991. Symbols of the medical community, babies, women, mothers, the elderly, the sick, the imprisoned, the justice system, those contemplating abortion, the unborn, victims, the suffering, the dying, and all who are defenseless were collected from many people and placed in front of the altar. Then, as each group was being remembered in prayer and song, one of our teens (Sarina) placed a rose in front of the unique symbol for that group. Many participants expressed being moved by the service.
