The Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple will be dedicated in six sessions on Saturday and Sunday, August 22 and 23, 2009. The dedication follows the temple’s public open house which was held from June 1 through August 1, 2009. The temple is scheduled to open for ordinances on Monday, August 24, 2009.
In a letter dated April 7, 2009, the First Presidency stated: “We, with you, look forward to the dedication of this house of the Lord and the blessing it will be to the Saints.”
The Oquirrh Mountain Utah Temple is the second to be dedicated in the Salt Lake Valley this year to alleviate overcrowding due to growth in the area. The Draper Utah Temple was dedicated in March 2009.
