The date has been announced by the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for the dedication of the Pocatello Idaho Temple.
The temple in the city of Pocatello, known as the Gate City, will be dedicated on Sunday, November 7, 2021, in three sessions, by President M. Russell Ballard, acting president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, who will preside at the dedication. The dedicatory sessions will be held at 9 a.m., noon and 3 p.m.
The public is invited to tour the new temple in Pocatello, beginning on Saturday, September 18, 2021. The open house runs through Saturday, October 23, except for Sundays, including September 19, 26, October 2–3 (general conference), 10 and 17.
“This temple combines classical architectural elements as well as more modern art deco designs and draws upon colors native to the beautiful state of Idaho,” said Bill Williams, director of Temple Design, who was born and raised in Pocatello. “The details inside and outside the building will be stunning, from the art glass to the flooring to the grounds. Those who visit this temple will also be able to enjoy lovely views looking out to the west toward the Snake River Plain.”
A youth devotional will be held on Saturday, November 6, just prior to the dedication. The dedicatory sessions and youth devotional will be broadcast to all congregations in the Pocatello Idaho Temple District.
