HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"The temple is concerned with things of immortality. It is a bridge between this life and the next. All of the ordinances that take place in the house of the Lord are expressions of our belief in the immortality of the human soul."
—Gordon B. Hinckley

LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Monument Sign Installed at Lisbon Portugal Temple

Three stones inscribed with the name of the Church and the name of the temple have been attached to the concrete sign holder incorporated into the retaining wall system around the Lisbon Portugal Temple. Landscaping and interior finish work continues. The public will be invited to tour the new facility at an open house beginning in three months.

Landscaping the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple Grounds

A handsome magnolia tree—a favorite of the South—will serve as the centerpiece of the beautiful grounds on the rear side of the Baton Rouge Louisiana Temple. A wide variety of trees and shrubs are being delivered to the construction site for planting. Several stained-glass windows have been installed in the temple.

New Water Feature Completed at Bountiful Utah Temple

The grounds renovation on the east side of the Bountiful Utah Temple has been completed with a new semicircular gathering area, anchored by a stone-clad water feature and surrounded by freshly planted gardens in dark mulch. A new staircase below the east exit doors was also created as part of the project.

Installing Entrance Doors at the Raleigh North Carolina Temple

As installers fit beautiful wrought-iron doors in the entrance opening to the Raleigh North Carolina Temple, landscapers are transforming the grounds with the addition of new curbing, retaining walls, and numerous trees and shrubs. Guests are invited to tour the renovated temple the last full week of September 2019.
