Angel Moroni, Shrouded in Fog, Tops the First Temple in Connecticut (Video)

Latter-day Saints in Connecticut are watching closely the construction progress of that state’s first Mormon temple.

A significant milestone of the progress is in the placement of the angel Moroni on the top of the temple’s lone spire. That moment occurred the morning of Friday, December 11, 2015.

Some of the construction personnel working on the temple weren’t aware that the angel Moroni would be lifted in place on this day. Feeling the excitement of the occasion, several of them got a little teary-eyed as they watched the statue being pulled from the shipping crate. Many were close enough to snap photos of the statue.
