New Temples Announced In Conference

by Molly on October 1, 2011

During his opening remarks at the Saturday morning session of the October 2011 General Conference, President Thomas S. Monson announced plans for the first temple in Wyoming, to be constructed in historic Star Valley.

In 1892, the Star Valley Stake was organized with 7 wards. The 140-foot Star Valley Tabernacle, which still stands in Afton, was dedicated on August 15, 1909, by President Joseph F. Smith. There are now two stakes of the Church in Star Valley: the Afton Wyoming Stake and the Thayne Wyoming Stake. These stakes currently belong to the Idaho Falls Idaho Temple District.

Other temples announced for construction were:  Provo, Utah; Paris, France; Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo; Durban, South Africa; Barranquilla, Colombia.
