Interim Policies Approved for Australia

After extensive discussion of Australia National Conference recommendations, interim policies regarding same-gender ordination have been approved by the Council of Twelve and the First Presidency for Australia only.

Policies were effective June 1, 2013, and will be evaluated after two years to determine if any updates or revisions are needed to address questions not previously anticipated.

These policies have been distributed to field officers for the purpose of training local leaders for implementation. Please contact your pastor or mission center president for more information on these policies.
