In a reversal, Saturday evening session of Conference will continue
SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced on Tuesday that the Saturday evening session of the Church’s general conference will continue to be held. This is a reversal of an announcement made on June 7th.
“We recognize the increasing challenges facing members of the Church worldwide in our day,” a statement by the church’s First Presidency read.
“An important way to fortify against these challenges comes through hearing the word of God, “the statement continued. “Therefore, after additional study and prayer, we have felt impressed to continue to hold the Saturday evening session of general conference, albeit in a different format than in the past.”
Beginning with the October 2021 semiannual general conference, the Saturday evening session will be continued. All members and friends of the Church are invited to view this session.
It will not have a specific theme, nor will it be intended for any particular demographic or leadership group. Holding this session will allow for more gospel topics to be taught and permit more general leaders to address the conference.
