Pocatello Temple Open House & Dedication Dates Announced
After two and a half years of construction, the dedication of the Pocatello Temple will take place on November 7, 2021! The temple was originally announced in April 2017 by then-President Thomas S. Monson, and the groundbreaking was held in the spring of 2019. So after more than five years of waiting, the Latter-day Saints in the area are surely very excited for this announcement!
The temple will be dedicated in three sessions, by President M. Russell Ballard, who will preside at the dedication. The dedicatory sessions will be held at 9 a.m., noon and 3 p.m.
The Pocatello Temple open house will begin on Saturday, September 18, and continue through Saturday, October 23, except for September 19, 26, October 2–3 (general conference), 10 and 17. If you’d like to tour the temple before it is re-dedicated, free reservations will be made available through www.churchofjesuschrist.org as the open house dates get closer.
A youth devotional will be held on Saturday, November 6, just prior to the dedication. The dedicatory sessions and youth devotional will be broadcast to all congregations in the Pocatello Idaho Temple District.
Also be sure to take another look at what the temple will look like inside on our post here.
Again, free tickets will be made available to the public a couple of weeks before the open house begins.
