LDS Church Implements New Worldwide Communication System

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

As announced through, the Church is implementing a new worldwide system to improve communications between the General Authorities of the Church and stake and ward leaders.

In the past, official letters from the First Presidency, the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and the Presiding Bishopric were sent through the traditional mail system. Members of the Church may recognize these letters or notices as things read over the pulpit. The new system will be completely electronic and will be fully implemented by May 31.

How does it work? Any official letter or notice will be published in 40 languages and placed in the Official Communication Library (OCL), an online repository available through and the LDS Tools mobile app. The system will alert stake, mission, district, and temple presidents and bishops and branch presidents by email whenever something is placed online.

Any letters pertaining to a leadership calling will be available at You will also be able to search for keywords and phrases. All members can also login to to see official worldwide announcements.

Here are just a few of the titles of letters and notices already available to read by members:

  • Casting for Filming Scenes from the Book of Mormon
  • Ministering to People with Same-Sex Attraction
  • Political Participation, Voting, and the Political Neutrality of the Church
