True Mother has announced a Special Blessing Ceremony taking place on October 10, 2020.
This will be a special Blessing Ceremony for several reasons, especially because it will be the first world-wide Blessing event as the newly established Heavenly Parents Holy Community. True Mother's heart is to pave the way for the entire world to receive the Marriage Blessing from our Heavenly Parent and True Parent. With the success of the virtual Rally of Hope that just took place, it has become clear that there is no limit to the number of people God can reach.
