The First Presidency has approved the groundbreaking for the Cedar City Utah Temple to be held on Saturday, August 8, 2015. Attendance at the site will be by invitation only, and the services will be transmitted via Internet to stake centers within the temple district.
The temple will be located in Cedar City in southern Utah.
The temple was announced at the Church’s April 2013 general conference.
Additional information and invitations for the groundbreaking will be provided by local leaders in the coming weeks.
The address is 300 South Cove Drive in Cedar City.
After completion, open house dates will be announced so the public can tour the temple before it is dedicated. A date for dedication will also be announced.
There are currently 173 temples throughout the world either in operation, under construction or announced. Five are being renovated.
