The following press release was originally published by Newsroom in August 2020:
The Church has announced the location of the Syracuse Utah Temple. This temple, which President Nelson announced in April 2020, will be located on a 12-acre site at the intersection of 2500 West and 1025 South in Syracuse, Utah.
Plans call for a three-story temple of approximately 89,000 square feet. A groundbreaking date has not been set.
Utah currently has 17 operating temples. In addition to Syracuse, temples have been announced in Lindon and Tooele Valley (Deseret Peak). Temples in Layton, Orem, Saratoga Springs, St. George (Red Cliffs), and Taylorsville are currently under construction.
Temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints differ from meetinghouses or chapels where members meet for Sunday worship services. Each temple is considered a “house of the Lord” where Jesus Christ’s teachings are reaffirmed through baptism and other ordinances that unite families for eternity. In the temple, Church members learn more about the purpose of life and make covenants to follow Jesus Christ and serve their fellow man.
