HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

—Brigham Young

LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Lighting the Exterior of the Pocatello Idaho Temple

Exterior lighting tests and adjustments continue periodically for the Pocatello Idaho Temple. The holy structure was all aglow last night, drawing hundreds of visitors to the grounds with cell phones in hand to snap pictures and text their friends. A 45-second aerial video of the site shows not only the beauty of the temple at night, but also the progress on the landscaping. No grass sod has been laid, but plenty of path lights are operating among the nearly 500 trees and numerous shrubs that have been planted.

Planting Trees, Finalizing Cladding of the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple

Scaffolding has returned around the base of the steeple atop the Saratoga Springs Utah Temple where the final pieces of precast trim are being installed. More curbing has been poured for the parking areas on the south side of the lot, and a curving retaining wall has been installed on the east side. Trees are being planted around the meetinghouse and in the islands separating the parking sections. The temple turns a warm ivory color when it catches the golden rays of the setting sun.

Clearing the Tallahassee Florida Temple Site

Heavy machinery is clearing vegetation from the heavily wooded site for the Tallahassee Florida Temple. The groundbreaking event for the state's third temple was held earlier this month under the direction of James B. Martino. It will serve Church members in North Florida who currently travel to the Orlando Florida Temple in Central Florida or to the Birmingham Alabama Temple in North Central Alabama.

Monument Sign Installed at the Belém Brazil Temple

The concrete base for the monument sign at the Belém Brazil Temple has now been faced in stone. The inscription identifies the name of the Church and the name of the temple. Landscaping continues at the temple entrance, which will feature a wide staircase, raised planter boxes, and a pebble mosaic plaza. Trees, shrubs, and grass are bringing color and life to the grounds.
