Ground Broken for Farmington New Mexico Temple

Ground has been broken on the latest house of the Lord, the Farmington New Mexico Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Church leaders and invited guests gathered on Saturday, April 30, 2022, for the groundbreaking of New Mexico’s second temple.

“We are grateful Thy temple will be built in this city where three rivers come together and leave as one,” said Elder Anthony D. Perkins of the Quorum of the Seventy, who presided at the event.

The single-story structure will be about 25,000 square feet in size. The temple will serve Latter-day Saints from the Four Corners region of the Southwestern United States, including parts of New Mexico, Colorado, Arizona and the Navajo Nation.
