The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints confirmed Wednesday changes have been made in member qualification for temple volunteering. The announcement was made privately throughout temples worldwide last week.

Temple workers, both male and female, serve in LDS temples around the world. They greet patrons, assist in sacred ordinances, and ensure the temple runs smoothly. Temple workers must be endowed and qualify for a temple recommend.

Previously, all divorced members of the Church were unable to be temple workers until after a significant waiting period. Single male members over the age of 30 were also ineligible. The announcement made has allowed all male members of the Church to serve regardless of age and all divorced members can now serve any time after their divorce.

All members interested in becoming a temple worker may contact their ecclesiastical leader to begin the application process. Most temple workers volunteer one day a week for an approximately 5-shift.
