LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Presidents Called for Temples in Winnipeg, Yigo, and San Juan

The First Presidency has called the temple president and matron for three temples that are under construction. George L. and Linda A. Spencer have been called to oversee activities in the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple. Marlo O. and Memnet P. Lopez will serve patrons of the Yigo Guam Temple. And Justo P. and Lucy R. Casablanca will have charge over the San Juan Puerto Rico Temple.

Concept Plan for the Tooele Valley Utah Temple

A concept plan for the Tooele Valley Utah Temple has been submitted with a rezoning application for the 167 acres of Church-owned property in Erda, Utah, where the temple and an adjoining meetinghouse will be constructed. Several housing developments and open spaces have been proposed for the property surrounding the temple grounds. The temple is anticipated to be similar in size and dimensions to the Pocatello Idaho Temple. A question-and-answer meeting was recently held with Tooele-area priesthood leaders and representatives from Church headquarters. No groundbreaking date has been scheduled, but it may be held as early as this fall.

Columbus Ohio Temple to Close for Renovation

On August 15, 2020, the Columbus Ohio Temple will close for extensive renovation. It is currently closed temporarily, along with all other temples, due to COVID-19. During the renovation, members of the Church in the temple district are encouraged to attend the Indianapolis Indiana Temple and Detroit Michigan Temple. The temple is expected to reopen in late 2022, but specific dates and details will be announced as the renovation nears completion.

Exterior Tarps Coming Down at the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple

The brickwork and stonework on the exterior of the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple is being revealed as orange tarps that have clung to the building for the last several months are removed. Work started on the east side of the temple, moved to the rear, and then to the west, finally reaching the front side a few weeks ago.
