In Chicago, the Family Ministries Office sponsors the Mother-Daughter Program as an outreach of the Natural Family Planning ministry. The program explores God’s special gift of human fertility and the beauty and wonder of growing up and becoming a woman.
This program provides an atmosphere of love and learning in which to discuss the important topic of growing up, and to establish a foundation for continued communication between parent and child. The presentations emphasize respect, understanding, and appreciation for God’s gifts. It is offered in a variety of sites around Chicago. Afternoon Tea is served at the event.
