Just as important as teaching young couples the nuts and bolts of NFP is making sure they hear about it in the first place! Creating awareness and appreciation for NFP among clergy, parishioners and the general public is the goal of our promoters. They communicate the benefits of learning NFP with CCL, in a variety of ways, in hopes of drawing more couples to our classes. Both couples and individuals volunteer as promoters.
What do promoters do?
Because one of the most common ways for couples to hear about NFP is through the priest or deacon preparing them for marriage, a main focus of promoting is reaching out to clergy to show them all CCL can do to help couples live happy, life-long marriages.
Beyond clergy outreach, promoters often:
- Publicize upcoming CCL classes
- Support the local chapter in ways such as preparing announcements, maintaining local chapter websites, bookkeeping, hospitality and other vital needs
- Staff information booths at local conferences and conventions
- Seek to create an environment in their local community and diocese that is supportive of NFP
Promoters who also give public presentations about NFP or share their witness story of how practicing NFP has been beneficial to their marriage and family are called Public Promoters. These presentations are often given at pre-cana events, baptism classes, RCIA classes, Knights of Columbus events and young adult groups. Public Promoters must complete a short online training program before certification.
