Pittsburgh Temple Open House & Dedication Dates Announced

Pittsburgh Temple Open House & Dedication Dates Announced

After three years of construction, the dedication of the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Temple will take place on September 15, 2024! It will have been four and a half years since it was originally announced in April 2021 by President Nelson. The groundbreaking was held nearly a full year and a half later, in August 2021. The Latter-day Saints in the western Pennsylvania area are surely very excited for this announcement!

The temple will be dedicated in two sessions by Elder Dieter F. Uchtdorf of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, who will preside at the event and offer the dedication. The dedicatory sessions will be broadcast to all units in the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Temple district. The Pittsburgh Temple will be the second temple in Pennsylvania, with a third temple to be built in Harrisburg, announced a year ago during General Conference. The two new temples follow the Philadelphia Temple, which was dedicated in 2016.

As with all new temples, prior to the dedication the Pittsburgh Temple public open house will begin on Thursday, August 16, 2024, and continue through Saturday, August 31, excluding Sundays. If you’d like to tour the temple before it’s rededicated, free reservations will be made available to the public through www.churchofjesuschrist.org as the open house dates get closer – usually a few weeks before it begins.

Unfortunately we don’t yet have any pictures of the Pittsburgh Temple, but we hope to soon, so check back later!
