Regina Saskatchewan Temple


Regina Saskatchewan Temple

The Regina Saskatchewan Temple is the 65th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Because of issues with transportation, Church President Gordon B. Hinckley's dedication of the Halifax Nova Scotia Temple was delayed a day. President Hinckley decided to go ahead with the dedication of the Halifax temple and Apostle Boyd K. Packer was sent to dedicate the Regina temple. It was the first time two temples were dedicated the same day, and the first time since the dedication of the Manti Utah Temple in 1888 by Lorenzo Snow that a temple had been dedicated by a person who was not a member of the Church's First Presidency.

Because of a truckers' strike, materials had not arrived until a few days before. Crews worked around the clock to finish the light gray granite facing, completing the exterior the night before the dedication. The temple was dedicated on November 14, 1999, and it has a total of convert|10700|sqft|m2, two ordinance rooms, and two sealing rooms.
