The ceremony began at 10 am and was carried out with great success with more than 30,000 in participation which included Ambassadors for Peace, church leaders and members from around the nation.

Ahead of the commemoration ceremony, a live broadcast via internet was screened showing True Mother's speech tour that was being held in the United States. True Father and Shin-jun nim arrived in the main hall at around 10:10 to commence the commemoration ceremony.

The ceremony was emceed by Rev. Sun-jo Hwang, president of FFWPU Korea. He led the congregation in the singing of holy song. After this Rev. Young-seok Song, vice-president of FFWPU Korea, came to the stage to offer a representative prayer. This was followed by a commemorative address by Rev. Chung-hwan Kwak, international president of IIFWP.

In his address Rev. Kwak gave a brief explanation about how True Parents opened the era after the coming of heaven and laid the foundation for Cheon Il Guk by declaring Ssang Hab Shib Seung Il and designating Ahn Shi Il. He went on to read the keynote address True Father gave on the May 21, 2004 "Declaration Rally for Absolute Values for the sake of Harmony and Unification."

After Rev. Kwak's reading a video was screened showing some clips from the early Ssang Hab Shib Seung Il celebrations. Rev. Chang-geun Kim (Regional Director of South Gyeonggi province) and his wife Jung-woon Lee offered a flower bouquet to True Parents on behalf of all participants.

True Father then took the microphone and began explaining about the significance of Ssang Hab Shib Seung Il and emphasized the importance of the speeches that he delivered in the recent rallies. He proclaimed that "the beacon has been lit that will reveal the era after the coming of heaven through a great true love revolution" and called on all participates "to let the cries of joy and hope explode."

Despite the fact that Father had just arrived in Korea after a 18 hour flight, he spoke for two hours bestowing words of grace to the participants.
