Photos document progress of LDS Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple
As the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple nears its dedication, construction continues, and photos document the temple’s progress.
The Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be dedicated Sept. 18 in three sessions, according to Mormon Newsroom. Before the dedication, the public is invited to tour the temple from Aug. 5 to Sept. 3, excluding Sundays.
Philly.com published a slideshow Jan. 23 of photos of the temple.
The Philadelphia Pennsylvania Mormon Temple website, owned and operated by the LDS Church, also has photos of the temple. The site includes photos from the 2011 groundbreaking. Mormon Newsroom reported that President Henry B. Eyring, first counselor in the First Presidency, presided at the groundbreaking.
"The work done in these sacred buildings becomes the crowning element of our religious worship," President Eyring said. "For Latter-day Saints, no building is more sacred than a dedicated temple of God."
Other photos of the construction of the Philadelphia Pennsylvania Temple can be found on ldschurchtemples.com, a site owned and operated by LDS Church member Rick Satterfield.
