LDS Cedar City Temple Announces Open House Dates
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the open house for the Cedar City, Utah Temple. President Thomas S. Monson announced the construction of the temple at the Church’s April 2013 general conference. The ground was broken for the temple August 8, 2015.
The open house will begin on Friday, October 27, and continue through Saturday, November 18, 2017, except for the Sundays of October 29, November 5 and November 12. The open house is free to the public. This will be the Church’s 17th temple in Utah to bring worship to more than 2 million Latter-day Saints in Utah.
A cultural celebration will be held Saturday, December 9 with a temple dedication the following day on Sunday, December 10, in three sessions at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. The dedication will be broadcast to members of the Church in the Cedar City Utah Temple district. The three-hour block of church meetings will be canceled for that Sunday for those congregations to enable members of the Church to participate and focus on this sacred event.
The temple is located at 300 South Cove Drive in Cedar City. It will serve members in southern Utah and eastern Nevada.
