*Reminder of CheonBo Donations Policy for UK Members* – 12/4/22
In order to simplify the process of collecting donations, all CheonBo donations and registration fees should be sent directly to the EUME HQ rather than to FFWPU UK HQ.. This will include donations for ancestor liberation & blessing and HJ offering papers, as well as donations related to registering as CheonBo Victor Couples.
The CheonBo EUME Branch will continue to organise Special Events every month to offer the grace of CheonBo to everyone. When you want to register for any of these future Special Events, please send your donations and registration fees to the EUME HQ.
The next CheonBo EUME Special Events in 2022 will be held simultaneously in multiple countries throughout the EUME region. They will be 1-Day Events comprised of only the Ancestor Liberation and Ancestor Blessing Ceremonies. We will not be conducting the Hyojeong Offering Ceremony for the Inheritance of Heavenly Fortune (Hyojeong Offering Paper Melting Ceremony) at this time.
There will not be a live stream of the events. A limited number of members from the Region will attend on behalf of those who register for Ancestor Liberation, Ancestor Blessing, Collateral Liberation and Collateral Blessing of Married Spirits, etc. Therefore, members will not need to be present at the venue to do Ancestor Liberation, Ancestor Blessing, Collateral Liberation, Hyojeong Offering Papers, etc.
Kindly note that the references for donations has been updated as of May 2022 (see bottom of article or Appendix A in memo).
For more details and how to apply, please see below.

Information on the Extension of the Special Grace for Applying for the Liberation and Blessing of 430 Generations of Ancestors
Regarding the Special Grace period for applying for the liberation and Blessing of 430 generations of ancestors, which was originally scheduled to conclude at the 9th anniversary of True Father’s Holy Ascension (August 24th, 2020), True Parents have heard blessed families’ earnest entreaties for an additional extension of the grace period. In consideration of the tireless work and efforts of members during this difficult time, True Parents have granted a further extension of the grace period until the 10th Anniversary of True Father’s Holy Ascension in 2022. After that, the Special Grace will no longer be extended and will return to the original standard.
As in 2021, all members are encouraged to join a branch ceremony in person if it is safe to do so, and through a representative if that is not possible. Despite the difficulties related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to urge all members to take advantage of the special opportunity that is offered by the CheonBo branch providence, and also to note carefully that we are currently in an “extended grace” period that will last up until the 10th Seonghwa Anniversary in 2022.
If during the Special Grace period you have liberated your ancestors until the generations 430, then you will be able to apply for their blessing at any event, even if the official schedule, outside of the special grace period, has not reached this set of generations yet.
Reminder of the process of ancestor liberation and blessing after 210 generations, outside of this Special Grace period: after 210 generations, there is no need to apply for liberation. The descendant only needs to apply for the blessing. When one set of 7 generations is blessed, the next set is automatically liberated and it is possible to apply for its blessing after a period of 100 days (then the next set of 7 generations will automatically be liberated etc…)
Registration Fee: 30 Euros
Attendees: Representatives of the EUME Region chosen by the Sub-Regional Presidents according to the situation of the event nations. The representatives will attend on behalf of the members that register for Ancestor Liberation, Ancestor Blessing or Collateral Liberation. Minimum 10 people up to 25 maximum per venue. If the size of the main hall of the venue is big enough to accommodate more than 25 and the local COVID-19 safety guidelines allow you to have more than 25 people in the event hall, the sub-regional president can decide the total number of people for that venue. The venue should be church property, e.g. HQ Building, Community Church Building, Peace Embassy, Training Center, etc.
If 10 people cannot gather due to COVID-19 safety guidelines, please contact us for further information. In the last years, some nations hosted the event with less than 10 people.
If any nation would like to hold a CheonBo event in 2021, please contact the CheonBo Branch through your National Leader.
Top priority must be given to local Covid safety laws, including travel restrictions. No meetings can be held above the permitted size for a gathering. Even then, organizers must make sure that those who do gather can strictly observe all social distancing measures. This may well mean hosting a smaller number gathering than the largest permissible number. Protective masks must be worn at all times.
Those that are sick, vulnerable or shielding should not go to the venue.
Those attending the event at the venue must prepare Blessing robes and a Blessing ring to wear as part of the Ancestor Blessing Ceremony – even if you aren’t blessing your own Ancestors. This is because those present will be representing the members that will be applying for Ancestor Blessing.
Those that apply for Ancestor Liberation, Ancestor Blessing or Collateral Liberation will still need to pay the event registration fee even if they aren’t present at the venue. This will be used for the event expenses. The registration fee is to be sent to the EUME HQ Office. Please send the registration fee before the registration deadline for each event.

- North Region: 15 EUR
- South Region: 15 EUR
- East Region: 5 EUR
- West Region: 15 EUR

How to Offer Hyojeong Offering Papers
If you would like to offer a Hyojeong Offering Paper at the event, please send the content of your wish (as short as possible) in English to the CheonBo Branch staff: firstname.lastname@example.org. The CheonBo staff will write out the wish and offer it in the prayer room on your behalf. Please send your Hyojeong Offering Paper content and donation before the registration deadline for each event.
For the members present at the venue, we want to give the possibility to offer Hyojeong Offering Papers in person. However, this might not be always possible for every event due to unexpected circumstances. The donation must be given in cash at the venue or via bank transfer to the FFWPU-UK HQ bank account (before the registration deadlines).
Please refer to Appendix A in the official memo or at the bottom of the article for donation amounts. To see which donation group your country is in, see Appendix B in the official memo. If you require help in sending your email in English, please seek help from your local headquarters.
The grace of expunging the record of the past sins of Absolute Good Ancestors is given if a Hyojeong Offering Paper is written with your name and offered and through your participation in the Hyojeong Offering Ceremony for the Inheritance of Heavenly Fortune in person. Because the Hyojeong Offering Ceremony for the Inheritance of Heavenly Fortune will not be held during these events, this grace will not be given. However, we hope you can receive the grace by participating in the ceremony at a later date.
Eligible Countries: All countries in the Europe and the Middle East Region.
