Journal Title:Journal of Research in Education and Society

This study examines the level of awareness of modern contraceptives use and family planning methods among Catholics of Hoima diocese in Uganda. The study is grounded on the Protection Motivation Theory and it adopts servey research design. Data are collected from 406 respondents mainly by use of questionnaire and interview guide. Quantitative data are analysed using descriptive statistical methods, such as frequency and percentage with the aid of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 20. Chi-square is used to test the only hypothesis formulated for the study. The findings reveal that majority of the respondents were fully aware of contraceptives use. It is also found that awareness of contraceptives use influences Catholic family values. The study concludes that awareness of modern contraceptives use has negatively influenced Christian family values. It therefore advises that Church leaders should sensitize people on the Catholic teaching on contraception and on the Catholic family values which they must uphold
