The fifth temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Brazil is nestled in the Campo Grande neighborhood of Curitiba, the capital city of the state of Paraná. With a population of over 10 million, Paraná is home to many immigrants and descendants of immigrants. The Curitiba Brazil Temple serves thousands of members of the Church in Paraná and Santa Catarina, Paraná’s southern neighbor. At the time the temple was built in Curitiba, there were also temples in São Paulo, Recife, Porto Alegre and Campinas. Now there are even more temples in Brazil, as the Church continues to flourish in this South American nation.
The temple’s exterior is made from reinforced concrete faced with sienna white granite from the Brazilian state of Espírito Santo. Windows featuring art-glass designs also adorn the exterior, allowing sunlight to stream into the temple’s many rooms. The temple contains a baptistry; instruction rooms, where members learn about the purpose of life; sealing rooms, where marriages are performed; and a beautiful celestial room, which represents eternal life with God. Temple attendance is special and important to members, as it helps them feel connected to God, learn about Jesus Christ and remember the promises they have made to be faithful to His commandments.
