Temple Announcement

President Russell M. Nelson announced the construction of a fifth temple for the Philippines during his closing remarks at the Sunday Afternoon Session of General Conference on April 1, 2018. The Cagayan de Oro Philippines Temple will be constructed in the southern Philippines on the island of Mindanao—the second largest island in the Philippines with a population of over 20 million. There are approximately 750,000 members in the country organized into more than 100 stakes and dozens of districts. Currently operating in the Philippines are the Manila Philippines Temple and the Cebu City Philippines Temple. The Urdaneta Philippines Temple and a second temple for the greater Manila area are in the planning and construction stages.3
