The Concepción Chile Temple is a temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints currently under construction in Concepción, Chile. It will be the second temple constructed in Chile, the first being the Santiago Chile Temple which was dedicated in 1983.
The intent to construct the temple was announced by church president Thomas S. Monson on October 3, 2009, during the church’s semi-annual general conference. The temple was announced concurrently with the Brigham City Utah, Fort Lauderdale Florida, Fortaleza Brazil and Sapporo Japan temples; at the time, the announcement brought the total number of temples worldwide to 151.
On 18 February 2018 The Church announced that an open house for the Concepción Chile Temple would begin Saturday, September 15, and conclude on Saturday, October 13, 2018. No tours would be available September 16, 23, 30 and October 7.
At the same time that the Open House and dedication were announced, it was also announced that a Youth Devotional would be held the night prior to the dedication, on 27 October 2018. This devotional would take the place of the Cultural Celebrations that had taken place before every temple dedication since Aba Nigeria Temple in 2005
The February 18 2018 press release also announced the pending dedication of the Concepción Chile Temple on 28 October 2018
The Concepcion Chile Temple is the 160th temple to be dedicated in the Church, the Second in Chile after the Santiago Chile Temple.
