European Blessing Preparation WS

Dear Blessed Families!
We want to warmly invite you to the upcoming European Blessing Preparation WS taking place in Neumuhle (Germany) 7-10 December 2017. As we make ourselves ready for the Matching and Blessing it is very important that we have an in-depth understanding of it; the workshop can be a great help in this process.

A Blessing Preparation Workshop is a requirement for all who wish to attend the Blessing and is designed to assist all candidates preparing for the matching or those already matched getting ready to go to the Blessing.

Attending as Parents and Children is something we recommend, as it can be a positive experience to support the Parents Matching process. We will use time to study the meaning and process of the Blessing and how to best prepare for attending God and TP through the Blessing. There will be time to reflect, share and work on one’s personal situation.
