Construction crew members at the Kinshasa Democratic Republic of the Congo Temple site gathered together to take a group photograph in front of the sacred structure. The photo shows that the temple is quickly progressing toward completion. On the exterior of the temple, crews are finishing roof shingling and a parking area; inside, stone and tile work are well underway.

Jordan River Utah Temple Open House Begins

Following a year-long renovation, the Jordan River Utah Temple is ready to reopen. A public open house will start on Saturday 17 March and will run through Saturday 28 April. The Church has created a virtual tour, seen below, for members who are unable to attend the open house.


Steeple Scaffolding in Chile

New scaffolding stands above the Concepción Chile Temple, signaling that the structure’s steeple will soon be complete. The steeple has remained mostly unfinished for months, with a windowless lantern, uncovered cupola, and Moroni stand-in. Crews will be completing the unfinished parts and replacing the temporary Moroni with a gold-leafed permanent one shortly. The temple is set to be dedicated on  Sunday 28 October 2018.

Lisbon Temple Progress

Scaffolding covers the Lisbon Portugal Temple this week, as workers turn their efforts to waterproofing and cladding the exterior walls. Interior work has also begun on the first Portuguese temple. No official announcement has been made, but the temple is estimated to be complete by mid-2019.
