Oakland California Temple to resume operations; Porto Alegre Brazil Temple to enter Phase 2
Two temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — one in California and one in Brazil — will be having a status change beginning Monday, Nov. 2.
The Church’s planned changes for Nov. 2 include:
- The Porto Alegre Brazil Temple moving from Phase 1 to Phase 2.
- The Oakland California Temple returning from a “paused” status to Phase 1 operations.
Phase 2 allows for the performance of all temple ordinances for living individuals, with Phase 1 limited to living husband-and-wife sealings.
With the change for the Porto Alegre temple, all seven temples in Brazil will be in Phase 2.
And with the Oakland temple returning to Phase 1 operation, only two temples in California — the Los Angeles and Redlands temples — remain in “paused” designation while waiting for local conditions to improve before returning to Phase 1 operations. At one point, all seven temples in California had been paused.
