First Presidency Announces Dedication Dates for Haiti Temple

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced dates for the open house, youth devotional and dedication for the Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple.

The free public open house for the Haiti Temple will begin Saturday, April 20, and go through Saturday, May 4, 2019, except for the Sundays of April 21 and 28.

A youth devotional will be held Saturday, May 18, and broadcast to meetinghouses within the temple district. The temple will be dedicated the next day on Sunday, May 19, in three sessions, 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Additional details about the dedication will be released later.

Thomas S. Monson, then president of the Church, announced construction of the temple at the Church’s April 2015 general conference.

The temple district comprises more than 17,000 Latter-day Saints located in four Haiti stakes (similar to a diocese) and three districts (smaller than a stake).
