Video: See the Angel Moroni statue placed on the Salt Lake Temple

In the Church News video “Fortify Spiritual Foundations,” hear what Bishop Gérald Caussé said about temples

Construction workers and others gathered on Temple Square in Salt Lake City on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, to watch as crews returned the Angel Moroni statue to the Salt Lake Temple’s center-east tower after a four-year absence during the temple’s extensive and ongoing renovations.

The 12-foot, gold-leafed statue of angel Moroni, sculpted by Cyrus Dallin, was originally placed atop the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on April 6, 1892, after the exterior of the temple was finished.

This Church News video, titled “Fortify Spiritual Foundations,” includes images of the crews returning the statue to the renovated temple. Presiding Bishop Gérald Caussé, joined by Emily Utt of the Church History Department, addressed the small gathering.

Quoting Church President Russell M. Nelson, Bishop Caussé said, “Everything taught in the temple, through instruction and through the Spirit, increases our understanding of Jesus Christ.”
