On April 12, 2021, Unificationists commemorate the 61st True Parents’ Day, a day for God as our ultimate parent to experience joy with His and Her children.
The Holy Day will be celebrated in conjunction with the 54th Heavenly Parent’s Day on April 27, 2021, the 61st anniversary of True Parents Holy Wedding. Wishing you and your families many blessings.
About Our Holy Days
The eight Unificationist Holy Day ceremonies are celebrated on their lunar calendar dates, and include the tradition of prayer, scripture reading, and offering tables, with towers of various fruits, nuts and packaged sweets.
The first four Holy Days relate to the order of creation (parents, children, the created things and God). The second four relate to events in Unification movement’s history (True Parents’ Birthday, the Nation of the Unified World [later, Cosmos], Day of God’s Eternal Blessing and the Cosmic Sabbath).
Holy Day Ceremonies can be conducted at home or at local churches. The Main Ceremonies for Holy Days are conducted in the presence of True Parents. Each Holy Day, we are encouraged to make a collective donation as a family offering to True Parents.
You can watch the live celebration of Foundation Day from Korea on February 24 at 11:30 a.m. (AEDT – Sydney time).
February 22, marks the 8th anniversary of Foundation Day! The late Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon, co-founder of Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU), often spoke about Foundation Day (Cheon Il Guk) in the years leading up to it and before his ascension in 2012. Foundation Day 2013 was the pinnacle culmination of a yearslong process, where God and True Parents are one. True Parents is an affectionate term for Rev. Moon and his wife Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon.

True Parents’ Birthday
16. Because of the Fall, the True Father had to emerge first, before the True Parents together. Today, believers in many religions surely wish that their own founder were the True Father, but God takes a different viewpoint. The person in the position of the True Father is to be born in the religion of religions. The True Father is the person who is qualified to procreate true children, that is, he is qualified to turn fallen children into true children. (83-043, 1976.02.05)
