    Temple Update

    Three new temples have been announced, one in the United States and two in Mexico:

    • The Reno Nevada Temple will serve about 25,000 members living in seven stakes in Nevada and one stake in California.

    • Mexico’s 11th temple will be built in Guadalajara, the nation’s second-largest city and the capital of the state of Jalisco. Guadalajara has eight stakes.

    • Mexico’s 12th temple will be built in Veracruz, capital of the state of Jalapa. Veracruz has four stakes, with four additional stakes within a 100-mile radius.

    A groundbreaking ceremony signaling the start of construction was held on 9 April for the Montreal Quebec Temple. As of 1 May the Church had 57 temples in operation, 35 temples under construction, and 20 temples in planning stages, for a total of 112 temples.
