Draper Utah Temple Dedication Date Announced

The First Presidency of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has announced the open house and dedication dates for the Draper Utah Temple. The open house will go from January 15 through March 14 (excluding Sundays) and will be dedicated on March 22, 2009. The Draper Utah Temple will be the 12th temple in Utah. The Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple is 72% completed and will likely be dedicated sometime in the spring or summer of 2009.

The temples in Provo and Ogden have over 70 stakes assigned to each. It seems likely that new temples could be announced in places like Spanish Fork or Layton considering the growth these areas are experiencing.

The Church also announced a couple years ago that land was acquired nearby Riverton, Utah for a future temple. Leaders stated that this temple would be announced and constructed once membership in the area demanded it.

Membership in Utah increased by over 30,000 in 2007.
