SALT LAKE CITY – The Mormon church plans to announce its new leadership on Tuesday, acting in the wake of the death of President Thomas S. Monson.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints said the announcement will be made by President Russell M. Nelson, the faith’s senior apostle.
The church said Nelson will address church members via live broadcast at 9 a.m. MST from Salt Lake City on satellite feeds and online. Monson died Jan. 2 at age 90 after nearly a decade leading the church.
