Dedication and Open House Dates Announced for Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the dedication and open house dates for the Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple.

The Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple will be dedicated on Sunday, January 14, 2024, in two sessions (10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. PET) by Elder D. Todd Christofferson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. A public open house will begin on Friday, November 10, and continue through Saturday, December 9, 2023, excluding Sundays. A media day will be held on Monday, November 6, after which invited guests will tour the temple from Tuesday, November 7, through Thursday, November 9. The dedicatory sessions will be broadcast to all units in the Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple district.

Peru, located along the northwest Andes range and Pacific coast of South America, is home to about 630,000 Latter-day Saints in nearly 780 congregations. The first congregation in Peru was organized in July 1956, and the first missionaries in Peru began preaching in August of that year.

The Lima Peru Los Olivos Temple will be the second in the city. The Lima Peru Temple, dedicated in 1986, was the third house of the Lord constructed in South America. Two other temples are in operation in Peru in the cities of Arequipa and Trujillo. There are also plans to build temples in the cities of ChiclayoCusco and Iquitos.
