Originally posted on Mormon Newsroom

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the Tucson Arizona Temple and Concepción Chile Temple groundbreakings. Each will take place October 17, 2015, at 10:00 a.m. Attendance at these ceremonies is by invitation only, with the general public invited to view the proceedings live from local meetinghouses.

Tucson Arizona Temple
The Tucson Arizona Temple will be the Church’s sixth temple in the state, joining those in Mesa, Snowflake, The Gila Valley, Gilbert and Phoenix. The temple was announced by President Thomas S. Monson at the October 2012 general conference.

The Tucson Temple site is located on N Skyline Drive.

Concepción Chile Temple
This will make the second temple in Chile; the other is the Santiago Chile Temple. The Concepción Temple was announced by President Thomas S. Monson at the October 2009 general conference.

The temple site is located at 1525 Pedro de Valdivia in Concepción, Chile.

The Church currently has 147 operating temples worldwide. Latter-day Saint temples differ from the meetinghouses or chapels where members meet for Sunday worship services. A temple is considered a “house of the Lord” where Christ’s teachings are reaffirmed through marriage, baptism and other ordinances that unite families for eternity. Inside, members learn more about the purpose of life and make covenants to serve Jesus Christ and their fellow man.
