Members in Ukraine used the occasion of Family Day to hold a Family festival with a Blessing ceremony in Kyiv in July 8, 2019. Svetlana Gribkova conducted the ceremony for 18 couples, organizing a beautiful celebration with a banquet and dancing.
As most of the participants were elderly people. Some families came as three generations of couples. Some couples who have stayed together more than 40 years spoke of their experiences of sharing all difficulties and joy together.
Introducing True Parents’ values to the festival participants, we emphasized the importance of promoting strong, traditional families and expressed gratitude for the example they are providing to the younger generation.
