A Letter from Our Regional President:
Hello Brothers and Sisters,
Fumiko and I would like to wish you all a Happy New Year! The year of the White Metal Ox according to the lunar calendar begins this Friday 12th February. Please be reminded that this year we will offer Heavenly Parent’s Day together with True Parents’ Holy Wedding Anniversary on 27th April.
Before that, True Parents’ birthday celebrations for 2021 will be observed together with the upcoming Foundation Day holiday on Wednesday 24th February at 9:30am Korea time. The online program will begin at 12:30am GMT, and we are all invited, so please plan on staying up late or getting up early. Come dressed in your best, ready to wish True Parents many happy returns! Please don’t forget that we have a tradition of offering a birthday gift, and donations can be made through your local community or online here.
True Father was born on 6th January 1920 by the lunar calendar, so he would have been 101 this year. And True Mother was on the same date by the lunar calendar, 6th January 1943. There’s many stories and photos of their remarkable lives together at our Centenary website: www.smm100.org
Foundation Day, which marks the official declaration of the opening of the Heavenly Parent’s kingdom of peace, was first celebrated on 13th January 2013, so this is the 8th anniversary.
