Uruguay Temple Dedication Postponed, Two Brazil Temple Dedications Set For December

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- A series of general strikes in Uruguay has led the LDS Church to postpone the open house and dedication of the new Montevideo Uruguay Temple, the LDS Church announced today. The strike has led to construction delays that will keep the Temple from being completed on time. The Church also announced the open house and dedication dates for the two new Brazilian temples, in Recife and in Porto Allegre.

The strikes in Uruguay are led by a variety of labor unions that are seeking increased salaries from the government, just as it is preparing its budget for the coming fiscal year. The unions believe the government's budget will not provide them with the raises they want. The strikes are continuing, leaving the dates for the Temple open house and dedication uncertain.

Meanwhile, the open house for the Recife Brazil Temple began November 11th and will continue until December 2nd. The dedication will be held Friday, December 15th. The open house for the Porto Alegre Brazil Temple will begin December 2nd and continue through December 9th, with its dedication held on December 17th.
