News Release from Mormon Newsroom

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the open house, cultural celebration and dedication dates for the Paris France Temple.

The free public open house for the Paris France Temple will begin on Saturday, April 22, and go through Saturday, May 13, 2017, except for the Sundays of April 23 and 30 and May 7. A few weeks before the open house, the public can make reservations at templeopenhouse.lds.org.

A cultural celebration will be held Saturday, May 20, 2017, featuring music and dance performances by local Mormon youth. The temple will be dedicated the next day on Sunday, May 21, in three sessions, 9:00 a.m., 12:00 noon and 3:00 p.m., which will be broadcast to meetinghouses in France and French-speaking units in the Europe area. The three-hour block of meetings will be cancelled for that Sunday.

Church president Thomas S. Monson announced the faith’s intention of building a temple on the outskirts of Paris in July 2011 and then confirmed it during the next general conference in October.

The Paris France Temple is located in Le Chesnay in the western suburbs of Paris.

There are currently about 38,000 members of the Church in more than 100 congregations in France. Missionaries are serving in two missions in the country.

The Paris Temple is the first to be completed in France. The closest temples French Mormons have attended in the past are in Frankfurt, Germany; The Hague, Netherlands; and Bern, Switzerland.
