50th Anniversary of Humanae Vitae

The Nazareth Family Institute (NFI),  would like to mark the 50th Anniversary of the publication of Pope Paul VI’s 1968 encyclical Humanae Vitae which deals with a subject – marriage and human sexuality – that relates to the courses provided by NFI.

For this purpose, NFI has arranged an afternoon conference from 2pm to 6pm on 4th August in the Carlton Hotel, Dublin Airport. The conference will be addressed by three distinguished and well known international speakers: Dr Maria Fedoryka (Ave Maria University), Dr William Newton (Franciscan University, Steubenville, OH) and Dr Marie Meaney (visiting professor ITI, Vienna).

There is no need to book in advance, attendance is free of charge. For more details see the conference page Love and Life in Marriage.



Nazareth Family Institute provides courses for Pre-Marriage Preparation, Marriage Enrichment, and Parenting. Our most common course is the Pre-Marriage Preparation Course, designed for any couple planning marriage and a Catholic Church wedding (who are therefore required to attend an appropriate marriage preparation course.) Inter-Church couples are also accommodated and welcome to attend the course.

We also offer one on one marriage preparation courses, and we offer marriage renewal and healing sessions for married couples on a one to one basis. See the "Services" page for more details.
