A National Service, a Worldwide Commitment

FFWPU USA: This is a week of great significance to True Parents and Unificationists. Across America, we will celebrate some of the most important dates in the history of True Parents’ work in the United States.

Unificationists covered Manhattan with eighty thousand two-by-three-foot posters with a portrait of True Father advertising that “September 18 Could Be Your Re-Birthday.”   Two years later, over 300,000 people gathered in Washington D.C., where True Father spoke on America and God’s Will. This is also the week when the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity was founded in 1961.
