Historic Weekend for the Church of Jesus Christ: 3 Temples to Be Dedicated on Same Day

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

It is a big weekend for three cities in the world.The Brasília Brazil Temple, the Bentonville Arkansas Temple and the Moses Lake Washington Temple will all be dedicated on the same day, Sunday, Sept. 17. This marks the first time that three dedications have been scheduled for the same day. 


Elder Neil L. Andersen is in Brazil with his wife Kathy to dedicate the Brasília Brazil Temple. He presided over what was the Church’s Brazil South Area in the early 2000s and has accepted many assignments to visit the people in Brazil since. 

Elder David A. Bednar will dedicate the Bentonville Arkansas Temple. He and his family have a special connection to the area as they lived in Bentonville for almost 20 years during the 1980s and 1990s. 

Elder Quintin L. Cook will preside over the dedication of the Moses Lake Washington Temple. 

Scheduling overlap shouldn’t be a surprise as we go forward. The Church has 315 total dedicated, under-construction or announced houses of the Lord.
