The public is invited to visit the temple during an open house from Saturday, 4 August 2012, through Saturday, 25 August 2012, excluding Sundays. The temple will be formally rededicated on Sunday, 9 September 2012, in three sessions. The rededicatory sessions will be broadcast to all stakes and districts in Argentina.
In conjunction with the rededication of the temple, there will also be a cultural celebration featuring music and dance on Saturday, 8 September 2012.
Latter-day Saint temples differ from the Church’s meetinghouses or chapels where members meet for Sunday worship services. Temples are considered “houses of the Lord” where Christ’s teachings are reaffirmed through marriage, baptism and other ordinances that unite families for eternity. In the temple, Church members learn more about the purpose of life and strengthen their commitment to serve Jesus Christ and those around them.
