The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced groundbreakings for the Syracuse Utah Temple and the Deseret Peak Utah Temple.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the Syracuse Utah Temple will be held in June 2021. Elder Kevin R. Duncan of the Quorum of the Seventy will preside at the event.
The Syracuse Utah Temple will be built on a 12-acre site at the intersection of 2500 West and 1025 South in Syracuse. The three-story structure will be about 89,000 square feet.
The groundbreaking for the Deseret Peak Utah Temple will be held in May 2021. Presiding at the event will be Elder Brook P. Hales of the Quorum of the Seventy.
The Deseret Peak Utah Temple will be built west of the intersection of 2400 North and 400 West in Tooele. The three-story temple will be approximately 70,000 square feet. A 20,000-square-foot meetinghouse is also planned for the site.
On January 19, 2021, the First Presidency renamed this future house of worship from the Tooele Valley Utah Temple to the Deseret Peak Utah Temple.
In order to comply to with state and local guidelines, attendance at the groundbreaking ceremonies is by invitation only. Photos and video of the events will be available to the media and public on Newsroom after the groundbreaking services.
