The transfer of this eNewsletter 

Many of you have previously received the eNewsletter from Cecilia and Mark LeChevallier. This mailing will now cover the NJ CCL Chapter and the Philadelphia area mailing lists. It's going to 471 addresses. Several things happened to allow me to take over the CCL's local newsletter. Cecilia has moved to Colorado and will not keep up with what is going in this area. I volunteered to put out an eNewsletter because I believe there are many people in the South East Pennsylvania area who would like to hear more about what's going on in NFP promotion and teaching. I hope to get input from some of you who receive this. I appreciate anything that I can put in later issues. Please send any input to me at

Goings on in the Philadelphia Area

Last year the teachers who taught for the Philadelphia Archdiocesan Sympto-Thermal method of NFP decided to be trained in the CCL method. They are now Certified. The CCL Board and Chris Reynolds met in Phila the weekend of May 6th. Among other things they invited interested CCL people to a dinner on May 6th. There Chris gave his views on building up reinvigorated local chapters. He also said that he and the Board met with Archbishop Chaput about some initiatives. I'll be reporting on them in future issues.

Some things to note 

A new regional area has been formed. It is called the Couple to Couple League of Southeast PA. It combines the chapters located in the Philadelphia and Camden areas. Leading this region is Helene Hallowell whose title is Diocesan Field Promoter. She previously was Executive Director for the Alliance NFP Network. Currently there are 6 teaching couples and 2 promotion couples in the chapter.

For Married Couples is this -- YOUR LOVE STORY?

 "With an understanding of Christ and what his Church teaches about marriage, couples can write their love story in the context of God's love story." 

Low-cost/high-impact complement to any parish or diocesan marriage program. Written from a Catholic prospective, but with a welcoming tone to non-Catholics and non-practicing Catholics.

One Flesh
