After a lengthy remodeling project, the Raleigh North Carolina Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is complete.Ā Members of the public areĀ encouraged to visit and learn more about the sacred work that occurs in the building during a free open house held Saturday, September 21 through September 28, 2019, excluding Sunday, September 22.

This sacred structure was originally dedicated on December 18, 1999, as part of an effort initiated by President Gordon B. Hinckley to construct temples located closer to the worldwide Church membership.

The temple will be rededicated on Sunday, October 13, 2019, in oneĀ session.Ā There will also be a youth devotional with senior Church leaders on Saturday, October 12, 2019.

The Raleigh North Carolina Temple sits nestled among local forest and evergreen trees in the suburban Wake County community of Apex, roughly 15 miles southwest of the historic colonial city of Raleigh. Adjustments to some of the larger exterior features were made during the remodel; the portico was enclosed, and the towerā€™s steeple now stands 10 feet taller.
