HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"Temples are places of personal revelation. When I have been weighed down by a problem or a difficulty, I have gone to the House of the Lord with a prayer in my heart for answers. The answers have come in clear and unmistakable ways."
—Ezra Taft Benson

LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Cupola Removed from the St. George Utah Temple

The steeple of the St. George Utah Temple will be a little shorter for now with the recent removal of the familiar dome and weathervane that have sat at the highest point of the holy house for more than a century. The temporary absence of the cupola is part of an ongoing renovation of the temple and grounds. Construction continues on the new temple annex and a new visitors' center annex.

Nighttime Lighting for the Quito Ecuador Temple

Installation and testing of the exterior lighting system for the Quito Ecuador Temple is in progress. The four corners of the tower are now regularly illuminated at night by a group of lamps at the tower's base. Work is advancing to the late stages of landscaping and construction. The temple is the second to be built in the country, joining the Guayaquil Ecuador Temple.

Art Glass Installation Begins at the Pocatello Idaho Temple

The first panes of art glass have been delivered and installed in the upper east wall of the Pocatello Idaho Temple. The floral shapes in the glass represent the bitterroot and syringa flowers that are common and significant to the region. The top of the spire has been wrapped in plastic sheeting to allow cladding to progress, and scaffolding remains in place on the front (west side) of the temple. Inside, there is millwork, network cabling, locker installation, and other activities underway.

More Foundation Walls Poured for the Red Cliffs Utah Temple

Basement walls are forming along the rear side of the north-facing Red Cliffs Utah Temple where the construction crew has been hard at work on building the foundation. Footings have been installed for the exterior walls, and additional footings are being poured inside the roughly rectangular footprint. A curved road on the west side of the property will give passing motorists a nearly straight-on view of the temple.
