Rededication ceremonies will be broadcast to Church meetinghouses in Germany as well as to Latter-day Saints living in the Freiberg Germany Temple district. The three-hour block of meetings will be cancelled for that Sunday to allow members in the area to participate in the dedication services.

The Freiberg Germany Temple was first announced on October 9, 1982, the first temple built in a communist country. President Gordon B. Hinckley, then Second Counselor in the First Presidency, dedicated the temple on June 29, 1985, and again on September 7, 2002, following another renovation that enlarged the building.

This temple serves members in eastern Germany, Czech Republic, Poland, Moldova, Romania, and Hungary.
