Temple Announcement

On April 7, 2024, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Uturoa French Polynesia Temple at the 194th Annual General Conference. It will be the second house of the Lord in French Polynesia. The Papeete Tahiti Temple was dedicated in 1983 and was rededicated in 2006 following an expansion. In 1843, missionaries set sail from the North Atlantic to Tahiti. The Prophet Joseph Smith and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles called four missionaries to take the gospel "unto the islands of the sea" in the Pacific. At the time of the temple announcement, the Pacific Area was celebrating the 180th anniversary of the missionaries’ arrival. There were nearly 30,000 Latter-day Saints in approximately 100 congregations in French Polynesia.1
