Instructions on how to perform priesthood ordinances and blessings are just a finger tap away. The Gospel Library mobile app now provides ready access to these helpful instructions so that priesthood holders can quickly find them.

The instructions were already available in the app within such publications as Handbook 2: Administering the Church and the Family Guidebook, but now they can be found as a separate item, making it easier to navigate to them.

To access the instructions in the Gospel Library app, tap Individuals and Families and then Priesthood Ordinances and Blessings.

Priesthood holders are encouraged to use the priesthood to administer to the sick, give father’s blessings, consecrate oil, and perform other ordinances and blessings whenever and wherever opportunities arise. This 24/7 access to guidelines facilitates that service.
