Guidelines for the Events
December 7th - Blessing Day
All Blessed Families
Make sure that you and your family are ready to attend the Blessing.
Doors open at 11 AM. (See attached schedule) Make arrangements for young children (under 12) to be kept at home during Blessing. Make time to bring the whole family Sunday December 8th to celebrate with True Parents. For older children there will be no children's room for them to play during the Ceremony so make sure they know that they will be seated next to you during the whole Ceremony.
Its not to Late
Call your contacts, ministers, etc. and make sure they have all the information about the Blessing, i.e. Staring times, transportation, directions etc. Tickets were giving out for people to attend the Blessing but TICKETS ARE NOT NECESSARY TO ATTEND. People can still come and register at the door.
Who can come?
Everyone is welcome! Even if they are not getting Blessed they can attend the ceremony as an observer. If people are coming to be Blessed they should register as a couple before the Blessing so they can get seating in the Blessed Couples area.

Parking is provided at the Hotel for $7.00 with ticket validation. Street parking is limited. Please continue to support the work of this Blessing with your donation of $200. You can still make a donation after the Blessing so we can cover the expenses. Thank you
