Latest temple updates: Phase 1 reopenings surpass 100, including temples in California, South America

With the latest announcement of 12 temples identified for Phase 1 reopening on July 6, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has 109 of its 168 operational temples worldwide open or scheduled to be open for limited operations.

The 12 announced Monday, June 29, to resume limited living husband-and-wife sealing ordinances include the first five to reopen in the state of California after closure in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Others are three in the United States’ Northeast, two in South America and two in Europe

The five in California are the Fresno California, Newport Beach California, Redlands California, Sacramento California and San Diego temples.

The reopenings of the Asunción Paraguay and Montevideo Uruguay temples in Phase 1 will mark the first in South America outside of Brazil. The Curitiba Brazil Temple was announced for reopening several weeks ago — after some uncertainty since of its status, the Curitiba temple is operating under Phase 1.

The other temples slated for Phase 1 reopening on July 6 are the Boston Massachusetts, Manhattan New York, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, Madrid Spain and Rome Italy temples.

Two temples in Mexico that previously had been announced for Phase 1 reopening on June 29 instead will continue to be closed — the Colonia Juárez Mexico and Monterrey Mexico temples.

In all, Phase 1 reopenings have occurred or will be occurring in 26 different nations and 33 states.

After a six-week period where all Church temples 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.
