Latest temple updates: 77 temples in limited reopening as 11 more temples start Phase 1 on June 8

For the fifth time in as many weeks, more than 10 temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been identified to reopen for limited husband-and-wife sealing ordinances.

On Monday, June 1, 11 additional temples were announced for Phase 1 reopening on Monday, June 8. They included the first two on the African continent — in Ghana and Nigeria of the Church’s Africa West Area — as well as others in Japan, Portugal, Tahiti and the states of Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Nevada and Texas in the United States.

Added to the temples identified for similar Phase 1 opening in each of the four previous weeks, the June 8 group brings the number of reopening temples to 77 of the Church’s total 168 operating temples worldwide.

In all, Phase 1 reopenings have occurred or will be occurring in 14 different nations and 25 states.

After a six-week period where all temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints were closed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the First Presidency announced its four-phased temple-reopening plan via a letter sent to general and local leaders dated Thursday, May 7.

The phases are:

  • Phase 1: Open for restricted living sealings only. Temple workers will perform living sealings only for previously endowed members, with the ordinances done under strict guidelines and safety precautions.
  • Phase 2: Open for all living ordinances only. Temple workers will perform all temple ordinances for living individuals, but temples will maintain closure of patron housing, clothing, and cafeteria operations.
  • Phase 3: Open for all ordinances with restrictions. Temple workers will continue providing ordinances for living individuals and provide proxy ordinances for ancestors in a restricted manner. The Church will open patron housing, clothing, and cafeteria operations as needed.
  • Phase 4: Open for full operations. The Church will resume regular temple operations.
