President Thomas S. Monson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined other Mormon and community leaders Saturday to break ground for the Church’s Hartford Connecticut Temple. This temple — Connecticut’s first — will be located on the corner of Farmington Avenue and Melrose Drive in Farmington.

"Today is a special and sacred day as we bring to fruition the hopes and dreams of the Church members here and break ground for the Hartford Connecticut Temple," President Monson told the gathered crowd of 500. "Each [temple] stands as a beacon to the world, an expression of our testimony that God our Eternal Father lives, that He desires to bless us and indeed bless His sons and daughters of all generations."
