Orem Utah — The First Presidency has announced groundbreaking dates for the new Orem Utah Temple. It will be held on Saturday, September 5, 2020, and will be presided by Utah Area President, Elder Craig C. Christensen.
Similar to previous groundbreaking ceremony, attendance at the site is by invitation only due to COVID-19.
The new temple will be located on a 16-acre site at approximately 1471 South Geneva Road, west of Interstate 15 and south of University Parkway.
Plans for the temple include a three-story temple of about 70,000 square feet with a center spire. A 20,000-square-foot meetinghouse is to be constructed on the temple site as well.
There are currently more than 2.1 million Latter-day Saints in Utah, which is just under two-thirds of the state’s population of nearly 3.2 million residents.
