President Monson Will Not Be in Attendance at General Conference

SALT LAKE CITY — LDS Church President Thomas S. Monson will not attend this weekend’s sessions of general conference, the church confirmed Thursday afternoon.

The 90-year-old President Monson, who has served as the president and prophet of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since Feb. 3, 2008, is dealing with limitations related to age. Without issuing a specific statement or update regarding his participation, church officials confirmed he would not be attending conference and pointed back to a May 23 statement updating his condition.
