“All blessed families of the Unification Church should become one centering on True Parents on the fourth anniversary of True Father’s ascension….I hope it will be a festival at which we can all come together in harmony and solidarity.”
— True Mother
The Fourth Memorial of the Universal Seonghwa of Sun Myung Moon, the True Parent of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, will be commemorated throughout the day on August 19, 2016 (7.17 by the Heavenly Calendar) in Korea.
The theme of this year’s anniversary is “Become the Light of the World through a Filial Heart for Heaven.” This year’s commemorations will provide an opportunity for Unificationists and friends around the world to gather together to promote harmony and solidarity, as we strive to inherit the “Hyo Jeong culture,” based on True Parents’ tradition of filial piety before our Heavenly Parent, and to achieve Vision 2020.
On the morning of August 19, the commemorative Seonghwa services will begin at 9:30 a.m. KST (8:30pm EST on Thursday, August 18) at the Cheongshim World Peace Center.
After the “Unification and Harmony Bibimbap Festival,” a celebratory luncheon with entertainment for those in attendance in Korea, the Hyo Jeong Peace Festival will convene, featuring performances by the Little Angels at 2:00 p.m. (KST); international cultural performances of True Parents’ favorite songs at 3:30 p.m. (KST); the Festival to Spread True Parent’s Love at 5:00 p.m. (KST); and the Hyo Jeong/Hyo Jin Moon Music Festival from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (KST).
