Groundbreaking Date Announced for Tallahassee Florida Temple

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced that the Tallahassee Florida Temple groundbreaking will be held in June 2021.

Elder James B. Martino, North America Southeast Area President, will preside at the event. Attendance at the site will be by invitation only because of current local COVID-19 guidelines.

The temple in Florida’s capital city was announced in April 2020 by Church President Russell M. Nelson. It will be the state’s third temple. The single-story temple of approximately 29,000 square feet will be built on a 4.97-acre site located at 2440 Papillion Way in Tallahassee, Florida. The temple project will also include a distribution center where Church products and materials are sold.

Florida is home to more than 160,000 Latter-day Saints in 267 congregations. Other temples in the state include the Orlando Florida Temple and Fort Lauderdale Florida Temple.

Photos will be available after the event.
