RE: Upcoming Second Generation Blessing Workshop in Maryland
Dear Blessed Families,
There will be Blessing in July 5th in Korea during the World Culture and Sports Festival and we expect that True Parents may match Second Generation prior to the Blessing. In addition, there are many who have been matched by their parents, and would like to participate in the Blessing ceremony in July 5th.
Second Generation youth who intend to participate in the Blessing ceremony are required to have completed a Blessing Workshop no more than 2 years prior to their Blessing.
Therefore, we are happy to announce an additional 2nd Generation Blessing Workshop in Maryland for upcoming Blessing candidates, those who have been matched by their parents and any Blessed Child 17 years of age or older who wishes to participate.
