President Nelson to Visit Three Additional Canadian Cities

Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in central and eastern Canada are looking forward to President Russell M. Nelson’s upcoming visit to Winnipeg, Manitoba; Montreal, Quebec; and Hamilton, Ontario, August 17–19, 2018. President Nelson will be accompanied by his wife, Wendy W. Nelson (originally from Raymond, Alberta), and Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Kathy.

Details of the devotional in each city are as follows:

Winnipeg, Manitoba: Friday, August 17, 7:00–9:00 p.m. (CDT) at the Winnipeg Manitoba Stake Centre

Montreal, Quebec: Saturday, August 18, 6:00–8:00 p.m. (EDT) at the Palais des congrès de Montréal

Hamilton, Ontario: Sunday, August 19, 6:00-8:00 pm (EDT) at the FirstOntario Centre

The Winnipeg devotional will be broadcast from the Winnipeg Manitoba Stake Centre to all other Church buildings in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, northwestern Ontario and the portion of Minnesota in the Fort Frances Ontario District.

Since he was ordained as president of the Church on January 14, 2018, President Nelson has been meeting with as many members as possible. His upcoming visit to the members of the Church in central and eastern Canada closely follows his recent visit to Alberta in June and his worldwide tour in April.

Suzanne Petillot, a Church member from Etobicoke, Ontario, is looking forward to President Nelson’s visit. She exclaims: “Anytime you can see a prophet, it is an incredible experience and a blessing. It is good to know who a person is, but there is something different when you are in the same space with a man of God and can feel his spirit — you can feel a difference in the room. I’m looking forward to attending.”

Elder Alain L. Allard, Area Seventy with responsibility for eastern Canada, invites all to attend: “What a memorable opportunity to hear from President Nelson, Elder Andersen and their wives. We encourage all to reserve the date and to come and hear prophets address us. Their messages will bless our lives.”
