President Eyring Rededicates Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple

After extensive renovation of the Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple, President Henry B. Eyring, second counselor in the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, rededicated the sacred structure in one session at 10 a.m. Sunday, May 19, 2019.

A one-week open house gave the public an opportunity to see inside the faith’s sacred edifice and learn about why Latter-day Saints attend the temple.

President Eyring said he prays the members of the Church will remember this day of rededication. “It will benefit our ancestors,” he said. “Don’t forget that our ancestors are real. They are waiting and when we do their [temple] work, the warm feeling [we feel] is the Spirit. That warm feeling will stay with you forever.”
