St.Paul Minnesota Mormon Temple

The St. Paul Minnesota Temple is the 69th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The new Mormon temple surrounded by oak trees stands as a symbol of the faithfulness of the Minnesota Latter-day Saints both those first Saints who joined the Mormon Church and came to Minnesota in 1847 and all those who have come after.

Before the completion of the temple members had to drive up to fourteen hours to the Chicago Temple. But now the 25,000 members in the area are grateful to have a temple of their own.

The site of the Minnesota temple is also the site of a stake center, a larger meetinghouse for the members of the Mormon Church. At the groundbreaking ceremony Elder Pinnock told officials, "We promise you a beautiful edifice will be raised on this site. You will be pleased with what you and others will see built in this community." [1] Truly the wooded 7.5-acre site with the single-spire temple covered with a light gray granite veneer is a beautiful sight.

During the dedicatory prayer on January 9, 2000, President Hinckley asked, “May all who serve herein do so with singleness of purpose, with love for Thee and for Thy Beloved Son, and for the accomplishment of the work of eternity for which it has been built.” [2]

The St. Paul Minnesota Temple has a total of 10,700 square feet, two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
