After renovation which began in 2019, the Hong Kong Temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will reopen later this July following the rededication held on June 19, 2022.

Church members in the Hong Kong Temple district participated in person and by broadcast rejoicing that the temple is ready to welcome members again. 

Vincent and Polly Fong, Church members in Hong Kong, are parents of three young children. Polly shared, “Temple worship brings us closer together as a family. My husband and I look forward to being able to attend the temple again soon. This helps us be better spouses and parents.”

Elder Gerrit W. Gong of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles presided at the services and said, “This beautiful Hong Kong Temple invites us in this Asia area to draw closer to our Savior Jesus Christ, build daily our spiritual foundation, and bless our family generations.”

The Hong Kong Temple was the 48th temple built by the Church and was dedicated in 1996 by President Gordon B. Hinckley. It was closed in 2019 to undergo needed renovations following 23 years of service.
