Payson temple openhouse planned
The free open house for the Payson Utah Temple will open to the public on Friday, April 24, and run through Saturday, May 23. It will be available every day except Sundays. The cultural celebration will be held Saturday, June 6, and the temple will be dedicated in three sessions on Sunday, June 7. The dedicatory sessions will be broadcast only within the Payson Utah Temple district, and the three-hour block of meetings for those congregations will be canceled for that Sunday.
President Thomas S. Monson announced the temple on Jan. 25, 2010,
and ground was broken to begin construction on Oct. 8, 2011. Lana Hiskey, public affairs chairperson for the Payson Temple, said, “The Payson Utah Temple will be a huge blessing to people living here and in the surrounding communities.
Twenty-eight stakes are part of this temple district consisting of over 93,000 people. We are excited to announce that individuals may order tickets on April 13 at 10 a.m. online at templeopenhouse.lds. org.”
