Save the Date: True Parents at the Garden

By | June 9, 2017


Yes, it’s official! True Mother will return to America and speak at Madison Square Garden on Saturday, July 15, 2017. That date is an important anniversary: it was on July 15, 2012 that True Father left the United States for the last time to return to Korea. We didn’t know then that it would be the last time to see him in America.

It is very meaningful that exactly five years later, True Mother will speak of the dream of God and True Parents at this most illustrious venue. This event will be the latest chapter in True Parents’ long history at Madison Square Garden. In 1974, True Father delivered his landmark message “The New Future of Christianity” to an overflow crowd there, and True Parents returned to the Garden to officiate the Holy Blessing of 2075 couples in 1982, and then again for the great interfaith Blessing ’98.

July 15, 2017 will be an unforgettable opportunity to share about God and True Parents’ dream for humankind. Join us in New York for this historic event!


It will be an all-ticket event, and supplies are very limited. Preregistration can be made here.

The day after Madison Square Garden, on Sunday, July 16, we will have a huge, happy victory picnic party at Belvedere. A block of several hundred rooms has been reserved at the New Yorker for Friday and Saturday, July 14 – 15, so please make a long weekend of it!


We want to encourage all families in America to join us in making an all-out effort to bring about a great, historic success.

  1. Pray! First of all, let us all offer sincere prayers for Heavenly Parents and True Parents’ complete victory. Let us pray for True Mother, and pray that God can use this opportunity to effect a great change in this nation, desperately in need of His word and guidance. A national 40-day condition of prayer will begin on June 5 and will carry to July 14. Detailed guidelines to follow shortly. Let us use the coming week to jump start on this condition with fervent prayers.
  2. Be There! Second, no matter where you live, please make definite plans to come, not alone but with your family, relatives, neighbors and tribe. You just have to be there! The program will have something for everyone, not just for FFWPU but all of our friends at UPF, ACLC, WFWP, CARP and all organizations.
  3. Donate! Third, we could really use your help to raise the funds to hold such a prestigious event. We’d like to invite all families to donate $700 or more if possible. Online donations can be made now at the FFWPU Special Donation Page.
