Brigham City temple site confirmed

A new LDS Temple will be built just across the street, west of the tabernacle in Brigham City. The announcement was made this week; several weeks after LDS Church President Thomas S Monson told those attending the church’s 179th semi-annual general conference that five new temples would be built, including one in Brigham City. This will bring the total number of temples in Utah to 14. The Brigham City will temple will serve the community of 18,700 which was named after the second LDS Prophet, Brigham Young. Currently, members of the seven LDS stakes in southern Box Elder County go to the Ogden Temple while those in the northern part attend temple sessions in Logan.
