On April 1-2, millions of Latter-day Saints will watch or listen to the 193rd Annual General Conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The First Presidency, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and other Church leaders will share messages of the gospel of Jesus Christ. All individuals, families and friends are invited to participate in each of the five sessions. 

“General conference provides an opportunity to receive personal revelation as general Church leaders give counsel and direction. We encourage members to listen to, study, ponder and apply the counsel given,” wrote the First Presidency in a letter dated Thursday, March 2, signed by President Russell M. Nelson and his counselors, President Dallin H. Oaks and President Henry B. Eyring.
