HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"There exists a righteous unity between the temple and the home. Understanding the eternal nature of the temple will draw you to your family; understanding the eternal nature of the family will draw you to the temple."

LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Excavating and Leveling the Mendoza Argentina Temple Site

For the past couple of months, the land acquired for the Mendoza Argentina Temple complex has been cleared, graded, and leveled while excavations for the building foundations have progressed. A local news outlet shared a story on the temple including a brief video that shows the heavy equipment in operation.

Installing the Stained Glass in the Quito Ecuador Temple

Temporary construction glass is being removed from the Quito Ecuador Temple and replaced with the final stained glass. The swirls of blue and green harmonize beautifully with the verdant tones of the nearby Andes mountains and provide a wonderful contrast to the cream-colored exterior. All of the windows in the temple tower have now been installed.

Ground Broken for the Deseret Peak Utah Temple

A beautiful spirit descended upon Utah's Tooele Valley this morning at the groundbreaking service for the Deseret Peak Utah Temple. Elder Brook P. Hales of the Quorum of the Seventy presided at the event. In his site dedicatory prayer, he asked: "Please bless all that will live in this temple district that they will feel the godly power of this sacred edifice." About two hundred Church members and invited guests attended at the temple site on Saturday morning under blue skies. The three-story temple will be approximately 70,000 square feet. A 20,000-square-foot meetinghouse will also be built on site in the northwestern section of Tooele. Elder Hales prayed, "Help us that through the Atonement of our Savior, Jesus Christ, we might be prepared and worthy to enter Thy sacred house to receive the blessings of exaltation available for ourselves and for our ancestors."

Construction Trailers Delivered to the Syracuse Utah Temple Site

Construction trailers have been delivered to the Syracuse Utah Temple site well ahead of next month's groundbreaking ceremony. The upper levels of the elegant edifice will feature curved exterior walls, similar to the Rome Italy Temple. Sitting near the shores of the Great Salt Lake, the rapidly growing city of Syracuse was named by settlers after Syracuse, New York, which was famous in the 19th century for its salt production.
