Church members from Ukraine and other countries in the Kyiv Ukraine Temple district attended Saturday's cultural celebration and Sunday's dedicatory services. Many other members in the temple district watched the dedicatory services via satellite transmission. Several Mormon missionaries and others in Eastern Europe blogged about last weekend's historic events.
This past Sunday's dedication of the Kyiv Ukraine Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints by President Thomas S. Monson was a historic day for the Church. Not only does the Kyiv Ukraine Temple provide a shorter commute to the nearest temple for 31,000 Church members in Eastern Europe, but this temple is also the first of its kind in the former Soviet Union.
