The Church has released internal shots of the newly renovated Oakland California Temple of the Church.
The open house will be held between May 11 and June 1, with the formal dedication held on Sunday, June 16.
President David O. McKay originally dedicated the Oakland California Temple in 1964 as the 13th operating temple in the Church. In the dedicatory prayer, President McKay expressed appreciation to the committee who chose the temple site in 1934, and stated that the temple is “a monument testifying to the faith and loyalty of the members of Thy Church in the payment of their tithes and offerings.”
President McKay also blessed those who had labored in the building of the temple or in any way aided in its completion.
“May peace abide in the homes of Thy people everywhere, and may sickness and disease be rebuked from their midst,” he said.
This week, Elder Quentin L. Cook and Elder Gary E. Stevenson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles are leading tours of the renovated temple for local community leaders.
