Angel Moroni To Be Temporarily Removed From Salt Lake Temple
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Angel Moroni statue, which lost its trumpet during the magnitude 5.7 earthquake on March 18, will be temporarily removed from the Salt Lake Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
According to a statement from the Church, the statue will be taken down as workers begin removing stones that were shifted out of place during the quake.
“Workers at the Salt Lake Temple project site are installing a crane on the temple’s south side to begin removal of some of the stones on the temple spires that were displaced during the recent earthquake in Salt Lake City,” according to Church spokesman Daniel Woodruff. “Workers will then remove additional stones from the east and west sides of the temple for preservation during the project. They will also temporarily remove the angel Moroni statue.”
Woodruff said scaffolding will be constructed around the spires, and the work is expected to last several weeks.
A special 30-minute in-depth look into the massive renovation project of the Salt Lake Temple will air Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. on KSL TV and the KSL TV app.
