Changes in General Conference Schedule

Two changes affecting the schedule of general conference meetings of the Church have been approved by the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve.

The general priesthood meeting of each general conference will hereafter begin at 6:00 P.M. (Mountain Time) instead of the former 7:00 P.M. time. This change was dictated by the desire to accommodate those viewing the session by closed circuit telecast in the eastern United States, who were then required to travel to their homes after 11:00 P.M. (Eastern Time).

It has also been decided that there will be no general Welfare Services meeting on the Saturday morning of conference in April this year.

The 153rd Annual General Conference of the Church will convene in the Tabernacle on Temple Square in Salt Lake City on Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3. General sessions are scheduled at 10:00 A.M. and 2:00 P.M. each day, with the priesthood session Saturday at 6:00 P.M.

The Semiannual General Conference of the Church is scheduled Saturday and Sunday, October 1 and 2.
