Church Dedicates Unique New Bishops’ Storehouse in Palmyra

The Church’s 100-plus bishops’ storehouses help provide food for families all over the world in need.

An area of great significance in the history of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the location of the new Palmyra bishops’ storehouse in Manchester, New York. Presiding Bishop Gérald Caussé dedicated the 8,000 square foot facility, Saturday, April 16, 2016.

“I am grateful to the many Church leaders and members who have given — and who will yet give — so generously of their time, resources, and talents to make this storehouse a reality,” said Bishop Caussé during the dedication ceremony. “I am pleased that this bishops’ storehouse will provide an additional resource to help those in need.”

The Palmyra storehouse is one of dozens around the world but is unique because of its location near the Palmyra, New York area, where many important events related to the founding of the Church took place. An open house of the new facility was held for local government and religious leaders Friday night and Saturday afternoon.
