OAKLAND, Calif. (ABC4 News) – The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced Monday the rededication and reopening schedule for the Oakland California Temple.

Elder’s Quentin L. Cook and his wife and Gary E. Stevenson joined anxious members of the media in California to make the announcement. The Oakland California Temple holds special meaning for Elder Cook as that was the nearest temple to him while growing up.

Elders Cook and Stevenson lead tours today for local community leaders, showing off the newly renovated interior of the Church’s 13th operating temple.

The Oakland California Temple was dedicated on November 17th, 1964 by then Church President David O. McKay. It was the second temple in California, following the Los Angeles California Temple.

The Church will hold an open house for local church members and anyone else to see the interior before it is dedicated. The open house runs from May 11 until June 1. Local youth of the church will perform a special devotional on Saturday, June 15. The temple will be rededicated the following day on Sunday, June 16.

The Oakland California Temple serves members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 31 surrounding stakes in Northern California.
