Ground has been broken in Syracuse, Utah, for the Syracuse Utah Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The sacred structure will be built about 30 miles northwest of Salt Lake City.

Elder Kevin R. Duncan of the Quorum of the Seventy presided at the groundbreaking ceremony Saturday morning, June 12, 2021.

“I am very familiar with these fields where we stand, where we are gathered today.

Whether you are a longtime resident, or a ‘new pioneer,’ this temple will be your temple.”
