All of us struggle with something. It might be that nagging resentment towards a family member, a painful or broken relationship, a fear that keeps you from doing what you want, or that same sin you keep committing even though you know it’s wrong. Whatever your struggle, the good news is that Jesus Christ wants to set you free from the things that bind you. Come learn about the Five Keys of Unbound, a simple process of prayer that will help you unleash the liberating power of the Gospel into your life and find greater freedom.

Discover what every couple needs to know and what every woman has a right to know!!!
So many people know that the Church doesn’t approve contraception or artificial reproductive techniques in marriage but very few realize that when the Church says no to something, the Church has greater and more beautiful positives and alternatives to offer. Contrary to a lot of misconceptions, no institution in the world is for woman and for families as much as the Catholic Church is. We know well from the Gospels that Our Lord Jesus Christ had restored the dignity of woman and His Bride the Church continues today to uphold the dignity of women and marriage through its teachings that promote equality, respect and sanctity. Why don’t you give yourself a chance to be educated about a scientifically based method of family planning? Attend a seminar and learn from NaProTECHNOLOGY Medical Consultants about a unique system of fertility regulation, a new woman’s reproductive health science based on over 40 years of research. Be inspired by the testimonies of couples and woman who have experienced its great benefits.
