Dear Leaders and Families,

The upcoming Hyojeong Cosmic Blessing will take place in conjunction with the 6th Anniversary of True Father’s Seonghwa on Monday, August 27, 2018. The Cosmic Blessing is an opportunity for us to respond to True Parents’ vision to share our Heavenly Parent’s love, life, and lineage with America and the world through the Holy Marriage Blessing.

Matched couples and married couples are invited to receive the Marriage Blessing directly from our True Mother in Korea at the CheongShim Peace World Center on August 27, as well as at various locations in the United States on the evening of Sunday, August 26. Communities throughout the USA are encouraged to host a Blessing Ceremony on August 26 in conjunction with the main event in Korea.

Start Smart: Level 3 Blessing Workshop

A National Level 3 Blessing Workshop will be held on July 20-22 at the Unification Theological Seminary in New York for matched couples preparing to receive the Marriage Blessing. The content is designed to support couples in preparation for married life and the Marriage Blessing and includes content on the value of the Marriage Blessing and practical guidance on relationships, communication, male-female differences, and building intimacy. Registration is now open.

We strongly encourage all matched couples to receive the Level 3 Blessing education in person at the national workshop in order to experience the full impact of the educational content. However, for those who cannot participate in the workshop in New York, there is an option to receive the education via an online course. Click here for details.

The Korea Blessing Experience


A fun and memorable program will be prepared for couples and their families from the USA, including the Cosmic Blessing Ceremony, sightseeing in Korea, marriage education, and activities for couples and families from August 26 to August 29. The Korea Blessing Experience will be an event worth the travel for anyone who attends, especially for matched couples, who will have the opportunity to begin their Blessed marriage in an unforgettable way. In addition, expenses for transportation within Korea, meals, accommodation, and activities will be covered by the Blessing Offering for participating couples.

The Hyojeong Cosmic Blessing will be officiated by True Parents at the Cheongshim Peace World Center in Cheong Pyeong, Korea on Monday, August 27, 2018.
