Dedications at Seattle, Temple Square, Hawaii, and Nauvoo

You might say it’s a time of dedication. Four prominent Church buildings and sites have been or soon will be dedicated:

May 27—Dedication of the Seattle Temple site; by President Marion G. Romney, first counselor in the First Presidency.

June 1—Dedication of the new Temple Square Visitors’ Center South; by President Spencer W. Kimball. Built to accomodate increased visitors at Temple Square, the new center highlights temples and Book of Mormon themes. The center is now open.

June 13–15—Rededication of the remodeled Hawaii Temple at Laie, Hawaii; by President Kimball. The rededication followed a month-long open house in which thousands toured the temple’s interior. Following the rededication, an area conference was held Sunday, June 18, at Honolulu, the first area conference to be held in the United States. Sessions were broadcast on radio and television in Hawaii.

June 28–30—Dedication of the Nauvoo Relief Society Monument to Women; by members of the First Presidency. Some 7,500 Relief Society members and other guests were invited to attend the dedicatory activities.
