Vicarious Work

Vicarious ordinances are religious ordinances or ceremonies performed by a living person in behalf of one who is dead. These ordinances take effect only when those for whom the ordinances were performed accept them. Such ordinances are performed today in temples.

Overview

Vicarious ordinances are religious ordinances performed by a living person in behalf of one who is dead. These ordinances take effect only when those for whom the ordinances were performed accept them, keep the covenants associated with them, and become sealed by the Holy Spirit of Promise. Such ordinances are performed today in temples.
