Winnipeg Manitoba Temple Open House


A public open house for the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be held daily from Thursday, October 7, through Saturday, October 9, with the exception of October 10, 11 and 17.

Tours are free, but to ensure compliance with provincial COVID-19 guidelines, visitors are encouraged to register in advance at thewinnipegtemple.org. Masks and social distancing will be required in the building.

Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will preside over three dedicatory sessions on Sunday, October 31, at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m.

Church leaders will speak at a devotional for youth ages 12–18 the evening before the temple dedication. The devotional will be held in a meetinghouse next to the temple.

This devotional and all three dedicatory sessions will be broadcast to meetinghouses in the temple district, which includes the 4,500 Church members in Manitoba’s 14 congregations. Latter-day Saints in these areas currently are assigned to either of the temple districts for the Regina Saskatchewan or Bismarck North Dakota temples.

President Thomas S. Monson announced the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple in the April 2011 general conference. Elder Larry Y. Wilson, a General Authority Seventy, presided at its groundbreaking on December 3, 2016.

President Russell M. Nelson and other Church leaders participating in the Winnipeg stop of his August 2018 ministry in central and eastern Canada visited the temple’s construction site on August 17. At the time, the temple consisted of only ground-level concrete footings and foundation.
