Durrës, Albania—Approximately 200 people attended a “Family Festival and Cosmic Blessing Ceremony” in the Albanian port city of Durrës.

The Interfaith Peace Blessing, held on June 9, 2017, was the second to be held in Durrës. Several European leaders of UPF attended the event, which was organized jointly by UPF and its affiliated organization Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU).

With Mateo and Majlinda Ziko of FFWPU-Albania as the emcees, the program started with entertainment provided by several young UPF volunteers who were visiting from Korea and Japan.
