Annual Saint Gianna Clinic Gala
Complimentary Seats Available
Can you believe it's been almost a year since last year's Saint Gianna Clinic gala celebrating Humanae Vitae? The Office of Marriage, Family and Pro-Life is sponsoring a table at the annual Saint Gianna Clinic gala on Oct 4. The gala will feature Relevant Radio host Patrick Madrid and is hosted in conjunction with the Shrine of Our Lady of Good Help.

I would like to make available 4-5 seats to NFP teachers interested in attending and helping support the Saint Gianna Clinic. To RSVP at our table, be one of the firsts to contact our office, but please do so by Tuesday, Oct 1.
USCCB 2018 National Family Planning Report
Earlier this year, The Diocese of Green Bay and 67 other dioceses submitted reports to the USCCB on the state of NFP ministry. This information was summarized in the attached report which illustrates broad programmatic trends, helps dioceses compare various metrics against the country as a whole, and helps the USCCB direct funds and efforts for the coming year. You can read the short report below!
Growth at the Saint Gianna Clinic!
The Saint Gianna Clinic welcomed two new practitioners in recent months. Read more about Dr. Madeleine Guevara, DO and Dr. Stephanie Grosvenor, DO below or click on their pictures for a full bio and to view their videos. The Saint Gianna Clinic is a gem in our diocese and the presence of these two talented physicians makes that gem shine brighter!
Dr. Madeleine Guevarra, DO joined the Saint Gianna Clinic in 2019 and provides routine care for women as well as care for pregnant women and those with high risk deliveries.
Dr. Stephanie Grosvenor joined the Clinic in 2019. She provides care for pregnant women and routine care for all women. She is trained in the diagnosis and treatment of various reproductive conditions using the Creighton model and NaPro medicine.
NFP Memes by The Couple to Couple League :)
I learned recently that The Couple to Couple League has compiled quite an impressive list of memes ranging from rather corny to quite good. The one on the right was my favorite. CCLI does a lot to strengthen communities of users and build a culture of NFP in our country and spreading NFP humor is a piece of that effort. Thanks Couple to Couple League!

The Sophia Institute is returning to Green Bay October 3rd to present on Theology of the Body. Reasons to join include:

*Hot breakfast and lunch provided
*Engaging materials provided
*Practical Application of TOB highlighted
*In line with recently adopted NFP ministry objectives

As you know, NFP instruction goes far beyond the mechanics of charting. Come and see how The Sophia Institute can help us engage client couples with challenging Christian teachings on marriage, relationships, and sexuality - but in a positive and attractive light! Hope to see you there.
