Since October 2016 UPF Barcelona started a project of interreligious conferences in our new centre in Barcelona, Ronda Barcelona, following the example of this kind of program in Madrid.
We organize these conferences twice a month, the first and third Wednesday of each month since 19:30 to 21:00 pm. These events besides the conference can include meditation, songs, video projection, poems, music, etc. Everything that can transmit the spirit of the chosen person.

Since a long time, we planned to hold a Blessing on Sunday, January 15th. Our dilemma was either to organize a “quick Blessing” or to educate more extensively the potential candidates. Finally, we decided to organize a one-day seminar on Saturday, based on Tim Miller’s lecture for Peace Ambassadors. One couple and two guests attended this workshop. - read more

It was with great joy and great blessing that we were able to receive and have in Portugal for at least five days our European Vice President, Rev. An.
Arriving on November 30 and staying until December 5, leaving our country early in the morning the next day, it was certainly a deep experience of inspiration and enlightenment for all the members who could be with him and listen to content, that we could feel came directly from True Parents, centered on the love, care and concern of our dear and beloved True Mother. - read more

From The FFPWU Rome, organized a special festival to convey True Parents' love from Jesus to its members and guests.
We do it every year, as a chance to explain the Principle's view on the messiah and testify about True Parents. Several families, with their children attended the event, starting with the Sunday service in the morning. Several passages from True Father' speeches about Jesus were red, until the explanation of the True Parents as the second advent of the messiah, to give Blessing to all mankind. - read more

"A number of members expressed that Rev Levy and Claire had revived their spirits, giving them new hope and inspiration. The message that Rev Levy and his wife, Mrs Claire Daugherty, shared with us had the power to inspire and motivate us because they have been through the fire in their own family and personal relationships. But no matter how difficult their situations they never gave up, but kept absolute faith in God, True Parents and their Blessing, and fought to overcome all obstacles; and have emerged victorious as a united, loving couple and family. They are the only couple I know of who have been crowned King and Queen of their tribe by their extended family and clan." - read more

A Culture of Peace’: this was the topic of a seminar held by the Munich branch of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification on Saturday 4 December 2016, and attended by 60 first and second generation members.
One purpose was to help us to clarify how to introduce people to the Blessing; and secondly, this was for the time being, the last seminar in preparation to receive the Holy Items. We were especially happy to welcome our national leader, Dieter Schmidt, as one of the speakers. Annette Bentele was the emcee. - read more

The family is still highly topical, even if some people have declared it to be an ‚outdated model‘. This is clear from the results of the „Shell Youth Study 2015“, which conducted research into the value system of German youth. Young people give priority to values such as friendship, partnership and family. 89% put particular importance on having good friends, 85% a partner whom they can trust, and 72% a good family life.
So we were extremely happy that almost half of those participating in the UPF event were younger than 25 years old. - read more
