Eight more temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will begin offering various levels of proxy ordinances later this month, while five temples in Latin America are resuming operations and offering living ordinances after having been paused.

After completely closing all of its temples worldwide in late March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Church continues to reopen its temples and their operations in a careful and cautious four-phase plan.

As announced Tuesday, May 11, one temple in Europe will begin offering all proxy ordinances on May 24, while five temples in the United States and two in Canada will begin offering proxy baptisms on the same date.

The announcement was the Church’s first following a move to releasing weekly temple-reopening statuses on Tuesday mornings, after a year of posting  updates on Monday mornings.

Moving to Phase 3 as of May 24 and offering all proxy ordinances:

  • Helsinki Finland Temple

Moving to Phase 2-B on May 24 and offering proxy baptisms:

  • Anchorage Alaska Temple
  • Chicago Illinois Temple
  • Idaho Falls Idaho Temple
  • Montreal Quebec Temple
  • Regina Saskatchewan Temple
  • Rexburg Idaho Temple
