International Peace Award 

Saturday evening we will celebrate the International Peace Award during worship in the Temple Sanctuary at 7 p.m. 

This year’s recipient is Community Peacemaker Teams. This international group believes in creative nonviolent action as a tool for sustainable transformation, rooted in liberating love. This group is actively working in Iraq, Greece, Palestine, Colombia, and Turtle Island.

Communion Worship 

On Sunday, 23 April at 10 a.m. we will share in the sacrament of the Lord's Supper as a worldwide church. President Veazey will bring the communion message.  

Time with the Presidency 

The Prayer for Peace at 1 p.m. will flow into “Time with the First Presidency.” This is an opportunity to hear the Presidency share good news and stories that point to a future filled with hope. Delegate seating will be observed, and non-delegates will have reserved space so everyone can attend.  

Experience the Temple 

Sunday evening is a new opportunity for people to participate in a variety of experiences throughout the Temple from 6:30-8:30 p.m. The ideas taking shape include ways for people to connect with each other thru meditation, music, language, peace, and fun activities for all ages.  

Activities will be spread across the Sanctuary, Meditation Chapel, Labyrinth, Foyer, Worshiper’s Path, World Plaza, Shalom Place, and more.  

Come and go as you feel led. Meet people, spend time in meditation, hear music from our global family, and check out booths from organizations, teams, and fields at the Mission Expo.
