The scheduled dedication and open house dates for the Winnipeg Manitoba Temple have been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.

Announced today on Newsroom, the postponement is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ third for temples that had been set for dedication or rededication and related open house activities.

Like the others before, the Winnipeg temple’s dedication, open house and youth devotional will be rescheduled when large public gatherings are deemed safe.

On April 30, the First Presidency had announced dates of Oct. 22 through Oct. 31 for the free public open house, with Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles to dedicate the temple on Sunday, Nov. 8, in three sessions. A youth devotional was planned for the evening before the dedication.

Dates for the Rio de Janeiro Brazil Temple and Washington D.C. Temple are pending following similar postponements.
