23 September 2012
Boyd K. Packer, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, dedicated the newest temple in the Church in Brigham City, Utah.
A native of this northern Utah Mormon pioneer-settled city, President Packer dedicated the 139th temple in the Church and the 14th in Utah after having broken ground on the Brigham City Utah Temple 31 July 2010.
Three dedicatory sessions were held Sunday, 23 September to give members of the Church an opportunity to participate in the special meeting which was broadcast in Utah and in parts of Idaho.
Joining President Packer for the traditional cornerstone ceremony prior to the dedication were his wife, Donna Packer; Elder L. Tom Perry and Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles; Elder L. Whitney Clayton of the Presidency of the Seventy; and Elder William R. Walker and Elder Allan F. Packer of the Seventy. Each of the Church leaders’ wives participated in placing mortar around the temple cornerstone. Members of the Brigham City Temple presidency also attended.
