Sharing the Blessing with our Ancestors

Washington D.C. August 4-5

Las Vegas October 27-28

Chicago November 3-4

Ancestor Blessing is an opportunity that True Parents established to share the Marriage Blessing with our family members and ancestors who were not able to receive it during their lifetime. This year, we will have the unique opportunity to participate in a USA Ancestor Blessing Tour that will take place in New York (July 28-29), Washington D.C. (Aug. 4-5), Las Vegas (Oct. 27-28), and Chicago (Nov. 3-4). 

We encourage everyone to join the event in your Subregion. However, if for scheduling reasons you need to attend a different one, please register for the event you will participate in.

"My hope then is that all of you can liberate all your ancestors and lead them to the Marriage Blessing and I hope you can accomplish this mission of making your ancestors absolute good spirits. This is the responsibility that you have been blessed with as Blessed Families."
