Temple Announcement

On April 2, 2017, President Thomas S. Monson announced the Brasília Brazil Temple, Brazil's tenth temple, during the Sunday Morning Session of the 187th Annual General Conference. There are six operating temples in Brazil including the Campinas Brazil Temple, Curitiba Brazil Temple, Manaus Brazil Temple, Porto Alegre Brazil Temple, Recife Brazil Temple, and São Paulo Brazil Temple. Three other temples are announced or under construction including the Fortaleza Brazil Temple, Rio de Janeiro Brazil Temple, and Belém Brazil Temple.1

Brasília is Brazil's beautiful national capital, renowned for its unique architecture. More than 1.3 million members of the Church live in Brazil, more than any nation in the world other than the United States and Mexico. The Brasília Brazil Temple will bring the blessings of the temple closer to the thousands of members living in Brazil's vast interior. There are five stakes in the immediate Brasília area with five additional nearby stakes and more in the surrounding region.
