The latest operation upgrades for temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints include two North America temples moving to offer all living temple ordinances and the first three of the recently announced 60 temples to begin offering all proxy ordinances in June or July set to start as early as June 7.
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.
The latest temple updates focused on four North America temples — published Tuesday, June 1 — come a week after the announcement of more than 70 temples moving to new phases of proxy ordinance work.
Moving to Phase 3 as early as June 7 and offering all proxy ordinances, with members in the respective temple districts alerted by email:
- Atlanta Georgia Temple
- Brigham City Utah Temple
- Nashville Tennessee Temple
And now in Phase 2 and offering all living ordinances:
- Mexico City Mexico Temple
- Vancouver British Columbia Temple
The Mexico City temple first opened for living husband-and-wife sealings in Phase 1 in late August 2020, with several times since where local COVID-19 conditions and precautions caused the temple to pause operations.
