Church makes temple adjustments
SALT LAKE CITY — The First Presidency and Quorum of Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has implemented temporary adjustments and limitations to their temples around the world.
In a statement released on Friday, they say that as of March 16th, in areas where governments have not restricted public or religious gatherings all living ordinances will be by appointment only and all proxy temple ordinances will not be performed.
In Utah, only living ordinances will be performed, by appointment and guests will be limited.
The statement says that church members will be provided with instructions when they schedule their appointments for living ordinances and that those with currently scheduled appointments will be contacted by temple staff.”
“Steps will be taken in all temples to minimize the risk of spreading disease, including reducing temple staff, limiting guests at living ordinances, and following guidelines for interacting with patrons.
“We look forward with great anticipation to the time when temples can again operate at full capacity and extend the blessings of temple work to members and their ancestors,” they write.
