New Palmyra Chapel Almost Complete

PALMYRA, NEW YORK -- A new, 24,000-square-foot chapel for the Palmyra Ward is quickly taking shape on Temple Road. Construction crews have nearly finished framing the building, and are ahead of schedule due to mild weather. "We're really thrilled with the way it is turning out," said David Cook, Rochester New York Stake President. He anticipates that the chapel will be completed by the fall, as planned.

The ward had outgrown the previous building, which was donated to the town of Palmyra for use as its town hall. The ward counts some 600 members, including nearly 250 who come regularly. The ward is currently meeting in a chapel in Pittsford, New York.

The new chapel will be unique, due to its location near the founding-place of the Church. Its design will reflect the colonial era, including a covering with tumbled bricks that look weathered and stones placed at the corners.


Ahead of schedule
