Dates of Montreal Quebec Temple Open House Announced by the First Presidency

The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the open house, cultural celebration and rededication dates for the Montreal Temple. The temple is currently under renovation.

The free public open house for the Montreal Quebec Temple will begin on Thursday, November 5, and go through Saturday, November 14, 2015, except for Sunday, November 8. The cultural celebration will be held Saturday, November 21, and the temple will be rededicated Sunday, November 22, in three sessions. Elder Alain Allard, Area Seventy in the North America Northeast Area, has been called to serve as coordinator of the temple committee.

The temple was originally dedicated by Gordon B. Hinckley, then president of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, June 4, 2000.

On June 2, 2014, the Montreal Quebec Temple closed for a complete renovation due to extensive water damage. The exterior has been reworked, giving the edifice a new appearance; the wooden-frame structures have been replaced by steel beams; and the interior rooms are being completely refurbished.

The temple serves Latter-day Saints in Quebec and Ontario, Canada, and Vermont, U.S.A.

To members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temples are the “house of the Lord,” the most sacred places on earth. Temple services bind families together forever, teach the purpose of life and explain God’s plan of salvation. Temple attendance emphasizes personal spiritual growth and strengthens Latter-day Saints’ commitment to following the example of Jesus Christ.
