ST. GEORGE — Dedication and open house dates have been announced for St. George’s second temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Red Cliffs Utah Temple was announced by Church President Russell M. Nelson in October 2018. Construction began in November 2020.
The nearby St. George Temple was closed for renovations in November 2019, and recently reopened to the public for an open house on Sept. 15. The open house will end on Nov. 11.
The Church now has 335 temples announced, under construction or in operation.
“Once dedicated, this house of the Lord will join the St. George Utah Temple as the second temple in the city, located in southwestern Utah. First settlers arrived in 1855, when missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ established a mission in the nearby community of Santa Clara,” The Church website stated.
