After being delayed a year due to COVID-19, The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced new dates for the public open house, dedication and youth devotional for the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple.

Members of the community are invited to attend the free public open house scheduled for Saturday, October 9 through Saturday, October 23, 2021, except Sunday, October 10, Monday, October 11, and Sunday, October 17. The open house gives people of all faiths the opportunity to tour the temple’s beautiful interior and grounds. Visitors may also learn more about the purpose of these sacred structures.

Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will dedicate the temple on Sunday, October 31, 2021 in four sessions, at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m, and an additional session, if needed. All dedicatory sessions will be broadcast to meetinghouses in the temple district.

A youth devotional will be held the week prior on Sunday, October 24, 2021, where youth ages 12-18 will hear from Church leaders. The devotional will be broadcast throughout the temple district at 6 p.m.

Provincial COVID-19 protocols will be followed throughout the open house, youth devotional and dedication.

There are over 4,700 members of the Church in the Canadian province of Manitoba organized into 14 congregations. Currently, the closest temples for these Latter-day Saints are in Regina, Saskatchewan, or Bismarck, North Dakota.

The temple, which is located in the city of Winnipeg’s Bridgwater neighborhood, will be the ninth in operation for Canada and the 169th for the Church worldwide. The temple was announced in April 2011 and ground was broken in December 2016.
