2013 MOTHER/DAUGHTER PROGRAMS Sundays, March 10 or March 24 for 10* - 12 year old girls 2:00 - 5:00 p.m.

(These two programs fill up very quickly. Please register early.)

Sunday, March 17 for 13 - 16 year old girls 2:00 - 5:30 p.m.

Saint Francis Hospital Auditorium 5959 Park Avenue The Mother/Daughter Programs explore God’s special gift of human fertility and the beauty and wonder of God’s plan for growing up and becoming a woman. Topics include: the changes in a young woman’s body as it prepares for motherhood; the onset of ovulation and subsequent menstrual periods; the functions of the female reproductive system; the sacredness of human life; the virtue of chastity; and a question and answer segment. Healthy dating ideas with a strong emphasis on chastity and reverence for our sexuality are also discussed with the older girls. It is good to come to both programs at the age appropriate time for each girl since the older girls’ program is an extension of the first one. The purpose of the programs is to provide an atmosphere of love and learning to discuss the important topic of growing up and to establish a foundation for continued communication between parent and child. The programs are presented by Natural Family Planning Teachers who will emphasize respect, understanding and appreciation for God’s gifts.

*Girls younger than 10 who are already developing and showing signs of puberty are also welcome to attend. Discount fee is $25.00 per family (non-refundable) if RECEIVED 6 days PRIOR to selected program. Within 6 days of each program, the fee is $30.00 per family (non-refundable.) (If you have daughters in both age groups and need to attend two programs, the cost is $40.00 per family for both programs if RECEIVED 6 days prior to the first selected program. Within 6 days of first selected program, the fee is $45 per family.)

Refreshments will be served. Seating is limited and pre-registration is required.
