A new Mesa Temple Visitors’ Center has been dedicated by Elder Ulisses Soares of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“The objective for this new temple visitors’ center is to provide for our guests a new experience, through interactive multimedia, that immerses them in Mesa’s rich spiritual heritage and focuses on learning more about Jesus Christ,” said Elder Soares who dedicated the new center in Mesa, Arizona, on Thursday, August 12, 2021.

“The visitors’ center was designed to help young adults feel a spirit of belonging. A variety of comfortable spaces have been developed to provide opportunities for them to gather or have a private moment to meditate,” Elder Soares added.

The senior Church leader said the Mesa facility offers visitors a new experience unique among other Church visitors’ centers.

“The displays in this visitors’ center teach us that there is hope and an individual plan for everybody. We hope that every person who comes and sees will understand that our life has a purpose and come away hoping to fulfill his or her purpose,” he said.

“We need connection, and we need to be together. And this is a place to do that,” said Elder Paul B. Pieper, a General Authority Seventy and president of the North America Southwest Area.
