HOLINESS TO THE LORD
THE HOUSE OF THE LORD

"As we touch the temple and love the temple, our lives will reflect our faith. As we go to the holy house, as we remember the covenants we make therein, we will be able to bear every trial and overcome each temptation."
—Thomas S. Monson

LATEST NEWS & EVENTS

At Home Under the Dome in Belém, Brazil

An inflatable dome continues to protect fresh concrete pours and provide shelter for contractors from the nearly daily rain showers experienced at the Belém Brazil Temple site. Both those on site and passers-by have become accustomed to the structure, which has been in place for almost three months. Its initial appearance produced many questions and caused a local social media sensation.

Abidjan Côte d'Ivoire Temple Tower Rising

The first section of concrete has been poured for the tower of the Abidjan Côte d'Ivoire Temple, and forms and rebar are in place for the next pour. The tower will be topped by a tall tapering spire and a figure of the angel Moroni. Inside the building, concrete block walls are being constructed.

Two-Month Closure Planned for the Bern Switzerland Temple

The Bern Switzerland Temple will close this year from approximately mid-May to mid-July for some work to the exterior. The nearly 65-year-old building was the first temple to be constructed in Europe, having been dedicated in 1955 by President David O. McKay. Once work has concluded, the temple will reopen for ordinance work. No rededication is required.

North Reflection Pool Filled at the Mesa Arizona Temple

A new aerial photograph captures the reflection of the Mesa Arizona Temple in the recently filled pool located on the north side of the building. On the west side, beautiful gold-colored doors have been installed in the main entrance. A similar set of doors has been added on the rear side of the building. Installation of the ornamental fencing continues as does concrete and asphalt work including sidewalks and parking areas.
