Nigeria: Marriage Peace Blessing and Coronation of UPF Founders
Tuesday 26 December 2017, 10:00am
To Wednesday 27 December 2017

More than 430 couples in Imo State, Nigeria, are set to participate in a special Marriage and Family Peace Blessing festival being organized by the Nigerian chapters of UPF and the affiliated organization the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU).

The ceremony will be held at Diakuma Kingdom in the Onuimo Local Government Area of Imo State on December 26, 2017, as part of activities to mark the 15th anniversary of the coronation of His Royal Highness Eze (Elder) Amb EIG Anyabuike, an Ambassador for Peace and king of the Diakuma Kingdom.

The Marriage and Family Peace Blessing, which is expected to bring together more than 1,000 participants including 430 monogamous couples, is designed to promote a culture of peace centering on families in the community. The program is designed to promote healthy marriage and family relationships grounded in true and selfless love, mutual respect, interdependence and “living for the sake of others.”

Participants on the Marriage and Family Peace Blessing ceremony will be newlyweds as well as previously married couples who will renew their vows. The participants will make a sacred promise as husband and wife to love each other faithfully, live together in peace, and raise their children and grandchildren to uphold purity.

Twelve exemplary couples have been selected by the king of the community as local coordinators, and each coordinator is mobilizing and educating 36 couples to participate in the blessing program.

On December 27, 2017, the UPF founders, Father Sun Myung Moon and Mother Hak Ja Han Moon, will be presented with a chieftaincy title by the elders and chiefs of the Diakuma Kingdom as Omeudo Ndi Igbo (Propagators of Peace) in recognition of their lifelong devotion to the realization of a peaceful world. The presentation of the chieftaincy title on the UPF founders admits them into the membership of Council of Traditional Rulers of the Diakuma Kingdom.

Location Palace of Eze Azoka-Anoka of Diakuma Kingdom, Onuma, Onuimo Local Government Area, Imo State, Nigeria
