Washington D.C. Temple open house and dedication dates announced

The open house, youth devotional and rededication of the Washington D.C. Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (originally scheduled for last year but delayed because of COVID-19) will now take place in 2022.

This news was made Tuesday, July 20, 2021, in a letter from the First Presidency and shared during a media event at the Washington D.C. Temple Visitors’ Center.

A media day for the renovated temple will take place on April 18, 2022, followed by private tours for invited guests from April 19 to April 27. A two-month public open house will then begin on April 28 and go through June 4 (except for Sundays). Open house ticket information is available at dctemple.org.

The youth devotional will be held on June 18, followed by the temple rededication on June 19 in three sessions. The youth devotional and rededication will be broadcast for all congregations within the Washington D. C. Temple district.

This is a great occasion for us to open the doors of the temple for our friends, members of the Washington, D.C., community, people, and partners of all faiths and backgrounds to come and join us and to experience the beauty and peace that is the temple of the Lord,” said Aaron Sherinian, director of media for the temple open house committee.
