    Elders Quorums Names Changed

    The Council of the Twelve has directed that all names of elders quorums in stakes and districts be changed to correspond with the names of the wards and branches.

    For example, a quorum in the Oak Hills Fifth Ward, Provo Utah Sharon East Stake, is now designated as the Oak Hills Fifth Quorum of Elders. If more than one quorum functions in one ward or branch, it is designated by general geographical location, such as Oak Hills Fifth North Quorum of Elders and Oak Hills Fifth South Quorum of Elders. This is consistent with the recently announced policy for naming of stakes.

    Elders quorums were previously numbered in each stake.
