SALT LAKE CITY via Mormon Newsroom —
The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced the open house, celebration and dedication dates for the Mexico City Mexico and Tijuana Mexico Temples.
Mexico City Mexico Temple
A free public open house for the Mexico City Mexico Temple will begin on Friday, August 14, and go through Saturday, September 5, 2015, and run every day except the Sundays of August 16, 23 and 30. A celebration will be held Saturday, September 12, and the temple will be rededicated Sunday, September 13, in three sessions.
The rededication services will be broadcast at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to meetinghouses in all stakes and districts in the Mexico City Mexico Temple district. The three-hour block of meetings on the 13th will be cancelled so that Latter-day Saints can participate in the sessions.
There are over one million Latter-day Saints in Mexico. For a quarter of them — those who live in Mexico City and the states of Mexico, Guerrero, Guanajuato, Morelos, Baja California Sur, Michoacán, Hidalgo, Puebla, Queretaro and San Luis Potosí — it is the nearest temple.
Tijuana Mexico Temple
A free public open house for the Tijuana Mexico Temple will be held from Friday, November 13, through Saturday, November 28, 2015, and run every day except Sundays, November 15 and 22. A cultural celebration will be held Saturday, December 12, and the temple will be dedicated in three sessions on Sunday, December 13.
The dedicatory sessions at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. will be broadcast within the temple district, and the three-hour block of meetings for those congregations will be cancelled for that Sunday.
The temple was announced by President Thomas S. Monson in October 2010, and ground was broken to begin construction August 18, 2012.
The temple will serve 25,000 Latter-day Saints.
These latest temples that now have completion dates were announced just two months after the Trujillo Peru and Indianapolis Indiana temples were announced in January.
