Rededication Date Set for Historic St. George Utah Temple

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has released the rededication and open house dates for the St. George Utah Temple.


The St. George Utah Temple will be rededicated on Sunday, December 10, 2023, in two sessions (10 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. MT). A public open house will start on Friday, September 15, and continue until Saturday, November 11, excluding Sundays and Saturday the 30th of September, which is general conference. A media day will be held on the Monday prior to the start of the public open house. The dedicatory sessions will be broadcast to all congregations in the St. George Utah Temple district. Additional details regarding the temple dedication will be announced as the date approaches.

The St. George Utah Temple, the first house of the Lord completed in Utah, was originally dedicated in 1877. After an extensive renovation, it was rededicated in 1975 by President Spencer W. Kimball. The temple has been closed since November 2019, following an announcement by Church President Russell M. Nelson in October 2018 to renovate pioneer-era temples. Both the Manti Utah Temple and the Salt Lake Utah Temple are currently under renovation.

The St. George Utah Temple is one of 28 houses of the Lord in Utah, the global headquarters for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
