Temple dedication dates announced

Mexico City Mexico Temple

A free public open house for the Mexico City Mexico Temple will begin on Friday, Aug. 14, and go through Saturday, Sept. 5, and run every day except the Sundays of Aug. 16, 23 and 30. A celebration will be held Saturday, Sept. 12, and the temple will be rededicated Sunday, Sept. 13, in three sessions. The rededication services will be broadcast at 9 a.m., 12 p.m. and 3 p.m. to meetinghouses in all stakes and districts in the Mexico City Mexico Temple district. The three-hour block of meetings on Sept. 13 will be canceled so that Latter-day Saints can participate in the sessions. There are more than 1 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, Nov. 13, through Saturday, Nov. 28, and run every day except Sundays, Nov. 15 and 22.

The dedicatory sessions at 9 a.m., 12 p.m. and 3 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 Aug. 18, 2012. The temple will serve 25,000 Latter-day Saints.
