San Luis Potosi Mexico Temple
On April 3, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the San Luis Potosí Mexico Temple.
This will be the 18th temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Mexico. San Luis Potosí is the capital and the most populous city of the Mexican state of San Luis Potosí in central Mexico. It is one of the area’s main industrial and manufacturing centers. More than one million people reside in the area, making it one of the largest metropolitan centers in Mexico.
The country is home to 1.5 million Latter-day Saints in more than 1,800 congregations. Missionary work began in Mexico in 1875.
The San Luis Potosí Mexico Temple will be built on a 3.87-acre site at Arboleda 100, Fraccionamiento del Parque in namesake city, with plans for a single-story temple of approximately 9,300 square feet.
Groundbreaking services will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2024. Elder Sean Douglas, General Authority Seventy, will preside and offer the dedicatory prayer. Attendance at the site will be by invitation only.
