The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints opens up renovated temple to the public

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints temple in Oklahoma City is fully renovated and open to the public, but only for a limited time.

Temple Back Night

The Oklahoma City Oklahoma Temple was originally dedicated July 30, 2000, by President James E. Faust, then second counselor in the First Presidency of the Church. It was closed on October 15, 2017, for an extensive renovation project.

The public is invited to tour the newly renovated temple from Wednesday, April 24, to Wednesday, May 1, 2019. The temple will be closed on Sunday, April 28, 2019.

At the conclusion of the open house, the temple will be formally rededicated on Sunday, May 19, 2019, by President Henry B. Eyring, second counselor in the First Presidency of the Church. Attendance to the session will be by invitation.

Worldwide there are 201 temples operating, announced or under construction. The Oklahoma City Oklahoma temple serves Latter-day Saints in Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri.

Latter-day Saint temples differ from the meetinghouses or chapels where members meet for Sunday worship services. Temples are considered “houses of the Lord” where Christ’s teachings are reaffirmed through marriage, baptism, and other ordinances that unite families for eternity. Inside, members learn more about the purpose of life and make covenants to serve Jesus Christ and their fellowman.

Reservations for the open house can be made through http://ChurchofJesusChrist.org/temples/open-houses
