Ground Broken for New Temple in North America

Such great news for the Saints in Canada!

Leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined with community leaders in Winnipeg in Manitoba, Canada, on Saturday, December 3, 2016, to break ground for a new temple. This will be the ninth temple in Canada.

Elder Larry Y. Wilson of the Seventy and executive director of the Church’s Temple Department presided at the ceremony. Several local Latter-day Saint and community and civic leaders also attended.

“The temple helps us prepare to be better people, to choose good over evil, to be more kind, more loving, more like Jesus Christ,” said Elder Wilson. “This is a unique design. There is not another temple in the world that looks like this.”
