"This community was founded during Utah's pioneer era," said Elder Walker, executive director of the LDS Church's temple department. "For all of that time, the residents have hoped and prayed for a temple. So when (LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson) announced three years ago that a temple would be built in Brigham City, there has been a feeling of joyful anticipation ever since."
Proclaiming Tuesday "a great day, a happy day" in northern Utah, Elder William R. Walker of the First Quorum of the Seventy of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opened the doors of the church's new Brigham City Utah Temple to the media.
