SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will host the 192nd Semiannual General Conference Saturday and Sunday, October 1-2, here’s what you need to know.
The conference consists of five general sessions of speakers from the First Presidency, members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, and other General Authorities and General Officers. They will share messages of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
“General conference provides an opportunity to receive personal revelation as living prophets and other general Church leaders give counsel and direction. We encourage members to listen to, study and apply the counsel given,” the First Presidency wrote in a letter dated September 2.
The sessions begin at 10 a.m., 2 p.m., and 6 p.m. on Saturday, and 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday.
Can I Attend in Person?
According to a media release, because of extensive construction on Temple Square and the surrounding area, in-person attendance will be limited. Tickets will be required and will be distributed by ward and stake leaders.
Local leaders around the world will make decisions about gathering to watch general conference in meetinghouses.

Who Is Invited to the Saturday Evening Session?
The October 2022 general conference will include a Saturday evening session for all individuals, families, and friends.
“Our Saturday sessions have a history of different purposes and different audiences,” President Oaks explained during April 2022 general conference. “For now, this Saturday evening meeting is a session of general conference, not a session of any organization,” he said. “Like all sessions of general conference, the planning, speakers and music are designated by the First Presidency.”
