The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will host an open house for the first time since 1974. All will be welcome to see the inside of the Mormon temple in Kensington, Maryland.
“The Washington D.C. Temple open house is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come and see for yourself what takes place inside these sacred spaces,” spokeswoman Anne Golightly said in a statement.
The open house comes after renovation is set to be completed in the summer. The temple has been closed since March 2018. Mechanical, electrical, plumbing and lighting systems were refreshed.
The dates for the open house are Sept. 24 to Oct. 31, except for Sept. 27 and Oct. 3-4, 11, 18 and 25.
The temple will be rededicated on Dec. 13, with a youth devotional scheduled for the evening before. Both the rededication and the youth devotional will be broadcast to Latter-day Saint meetinghouses within the Washington, D.C., temple district.
