Tomorrow the Ogden Temple will be closed for remodeling (demolition). They are literally tearing it down to its footings and rebuilding it to make it earthquake proof. It kinda makes me sad. Patrons have been able to perform sacred temple ordinances there since the early 1970's and will continue when the renovation is complete. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has temples across the world to provide opportunities to perform these sacred ordinances.
Church members in this temple district are looking forward to the
time when the renovation will be completed.
Did you know that the Ogden Temple was the first temple dedicated in the
"state" of Utah? The earlier temples (St. George, Salt Lake, etc)
were dedicated when Utah was a territory!

We are so blessed to have so many temples close by.
