Paris France Mormon Temples

Announced on July 15, 2011, the Paris France Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is currently being built in Le Chesnay, which is a mere 0.1 miles from the famous Chateau de Versailles. It will be the first temple in France. Upon its completion, the Latter-day Saints in France will no longer have to travel outside the country to attend the temple, where they find peace as they worship God. Members have had to journey to the temples in Bern, Switzerland; The Hague, Netherlands; London, England; Frankfurt, Germany; and Madrid, Spain.

Former Church President Gordon B. Hinckley knew there would be a temple in France long before it was announced. In 1998 while attending a Church meeting in Paris, he told the members in attendance, “The time will come … when we can construct somewhere in this area a house of the Lord, a sacred temple.” He directed the members to pray that those selecting a site would be guided by God. He repeated this request when he returned to Paris in 2004. Finally, a site was found in 2009.
