“Open House and Dedication Announced for Orlando Temple,” Ensign, Aug. 1994, 77
Dates for the open house and dedication of the Orlando Florida Temple have been announced.
Open house tours will be conducted from Saturday, September 10, through Friday, September 30. Hours are 9:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. on Tuesday through Saturday and 9:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M. on Monday. There will be no tours of the temple on Sunday.
Following the open house, the temple will be prepared for eleven separate dedicatory services, scheduled for October 9, 10, and 11. Members of the Church who live in Florida and Georgia will attend those meetings. A traditional cornerstone ceremony will precede the first dedicatory service.
The temple will serve Church members in twenty-two Florida stakes and one stake in southern Georgia. It will also serve members in the Caribbean until the completion of the recently announced temple to be built in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
The Orlando Florida Temple, built on a thirteen-acre site in Windemere, a suburb of Orlando, is the forty-sixth operating temple of the Church. In addition, the Church has announced plans to build eleven more temples throughout the world.
