Five temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — two in Hawaii and single temples in Canada, Tahiti and El Salvador — will begin offering proxy temple ordinances in Phase 3 operations beginning Monday, March 15.

Meanwhile, two temples in Mexico are returning to operation, while two temples in Brazil are pausing.

The status changes are the latest as the Church continues to reopen temples in its careful and cautious four-phased process, after halting operations at all temples worldwide in March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As announced Monday, March 1, the five temples moving to Phase 3 operations are:

  • Cardston Alberta Temple
  • Kona Hawaii Temple
  • Laie Hawaii Temple
  • Papeete Tahiti Temple
  • San Salvador El Salvador Temple

They are the first temples in their respective countries to begin Phase 3 operations, with the two Hawaii temples and the Cardston and San Salvador temples the first in that Phase in North America.
