COLORADO SPRINGS. As part of the marriage preparation requirements in the Diocese of Colorado Springs, each engaged couple must take a class in natural family planning (NFP).
One of the four options for fulfilling the requirement is training in the Creighton Model FertilityCare System. In Colorado Springs, Creighton Model classes are taught at St. Francis Medical Center by Kris Hardesty, who has been Certified FertilityCare practitioner for nearly 25 years. Classes are also offered at Ave Maria Parish in Parker.
