TOOELE — The Deseret Peak Utah Temple in Tooele will be dedicated on Nov. 10 following a public open house from Sept. 26 to Oct. 19.

These dates were announced Monday by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The dedication of the temple will be broadcast to local congregations within that temple district.

The temple was announced in April of 2019 by President Russell M. Nelson, along with seven other temples and the restoration of four temples, including the Salt Lake Temple.

"As we speak of our temples old and new, may each of us signify by our actions that we are true disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. May we renovate our lives through our faith and trust in him," President Nelson said in his message.

Originally, the Deseret Peak Utah Temple was called the Tooele Valley Utah Temple, but the name was changed on Jan. 19, 2021, ahead of the groundbreaking ceremony for the temple. The temple is located at 2400 N. 400 West in Tooele.

The open house will be held Monday through Saturday, except on Saturday, Oct. 5, when it will be closed for the church's general conference.

In the last month, two Latter-day Saint temples have been dedicated in Utah, in Taylorsville and Layton. There are currently 30 temples in Utah, either operating, announced or under construction.
