A New Group Photo of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles Is Now Available

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

A new photo of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is now available. The photo includes President Jeffrey R. Holland, new Acting President of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and Elder Patrick Kearon, who was called to the quorum in December 2023. The shot was taken in the Church Administration Building on February 6, 2024.

Today, as in ancient times, Jesus Christ calls Apostles to represent Him. The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles is the second-highest presiding body in the government of the Church of Jesus Christ. Quorum members serve under the direction of the First Presidency, which includes the Church President and two counselors. In addition to their primary responsibility to be special witnesses of the name of Christ throughout the world, Apostles have significant administrative responsibilities in overseeing the operation and development of a global Church.

The photo was shared by President Holland, who said: 

For three decades, it has been my honor and privilege to associate with the members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Without exception, every one of these men has helped me become a better disciple of Jesus Christ.
 
As we gathered recently to take a quorum photo, I felt a sense of immense gratitude to be part of an ongoing order of ancient and modern-day disciples of Jesus Christ.
 
The names and faces of those in this quorum change over time, but that which is essential remains: each apostle has accepted the charge “to be a special witness of the name of Christ in all the world.” No sweeter work could ever be given to anyone, nor any finer group of men with which to do it.
