Changes to Family History and Temple Service

New tools and procedures will help individuals and families doing family history and temple service:

  • Members can now print temple ordinance cards at home on white paper and bring them to the temple.

  • Temples have a family-priority time enabling families to schedule a time to perform ordinances together without a long wait.

  • Recent converts performing proxy baptisms for the first time can schedule an appointment so the temple can be prepared to receive and welcome them.

  • A new limited-use recommend can be created online and printed by priesthood leaders. The recommend is activated when printed and is valid when signed by the member and the bishop.
