Saturday evening conference session: Who’s invited this April?

Intellectual Reserve, Inc.

A letter from the First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced details for the 193rd Annual General Conference. The letter to Church leaders and members states:

General sessions for all individuals, families, and friends will be held Saturday morning, afternoon, and evening, April 1, as well as Sunday morning and afternoon, April 2. The conference will be broadcast on, other media, and the Church satellite system. Due to the ongoing construction taking place on and around Temple Square, in-person attendance at the general conference sessions will again be limited. Decisions about gathering to watch general conference in meetinghouses will be left to the discretion of local leaders.

Of particular interest is the statement about the Saturday evening session. In July 2021 the Church announced that the Saturday evening sessions, which had previously alternated between a women’s session and a priesthood session for men, would become a general session for all Church members.

Then in April 2022, the Saturday evening session was held just for women ages 12 and up. This has led some to wonder about the future of the Saturday evening session. Last October the Saturday evening session of general conference was for all members, and this April’s weekend schedule will be the same: Saturday evening’s meeting will be a general session and all members are invited.
