“We want to bring temples closer to the expanding membership of the Church,” said President Russell M. Nelson as he announced the Layton Temple in the October 2018 general conference. The Church of Jesus Christ now has 350 houses of the Lord in operation, under construction or renovation, or announced worldwide.

The Layton Utah Temple will be dedicated by Elder David A. Bednar of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in two sessions (10:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. MDT) on Sunday, June 16, 2024. The dedicatory sessions will be broadcast to all congregations in the Layton Utah Temple district.
