HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"Within the sound of my voice are many young women, young men, and children. I plead with you to be worthy, to be steadfast, and to look forward with great anticipation to the day you will receive the ordinances and blessings of the temple."
—David A. Bednar

LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

Angel Moroni Added to the Richmond Virginia Temple

Just a day after the steeple was secured to the Richmond Virginia Temple, a fiberglass statue of the angel Moroni was attached to the top of the spire. Coated in gold leaf, the heralding figure beautifully reflects the light of the sun while calling to those who seek the light of the Son, Jesus Christ. The trumpeting angel is regarded as a symbol of the restoration of the Church of Jesus Christ in these latter days.

June Groundbreaking Announced for the Tallahassee Florida Temple

The First Presidency has announced that ground will be broken for the Tallahassee Florida Temple in June 2021. Elder James B. Martino, North America Southeast Area President, will preside at the invitation-only event. The single-story, 29,000-square-foot temple will be constructed on a 4.97-acre site at 2440 Papillion Way in Tallahassee. The addition of a distribution center for Church products and materials will also be part of the project. Photographs from the services will be shared after the event.

Richmond Virginia Temple Steeple Installed

The beautifully proportioned steeple of the Richmond Virginia Temple was installed today, significantly adding to the height of the building. Cladding is making steady progress on the south side while framing has been completed for the grounds building that sits southeast of the temple near the meetinghouse. Plumbing, electrical, and HVAC are being roughed in for all of the buildings.

Stone Cladding Begins at the Columbus Ohio Temple

The installation of stone cladding has begun at the northeast corner of the Columbus Ohio Temple. A dark granite course runs along the base of the building while a light stone will cover the rest of the exterior. Plywood sheathing has been attached to the rebuilt vestibule at the entrance to the temple, and the window openings have been framed. The concrete block walls for the on-site maintenance building are in place with interior framing yet to be done.
