The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has set the date for the groundbreaking of the Puebla Mexico Temple. A rendering of how the temple will look has also been released.

Elder Arnulfo Valenzuela, Mexico area president, will preside at the event on Saturday, November 30, 2019.

Attendance to the event will be by invitation only, though it is anticipated that the services will be transmitted to stake centers within the proposed temple district. More information will become available as the date of the groundbreaking draws nearer.

The temple was announced in October 2018 by President Russell M. Nelson.

Once completed, the Puebla Mexico Temple will be the country’s 14th temple. There are 209 temples throughout the world that are operating, undergoing construction or being renovated, or that have been announced.
