Overview

The Hermosillo Sonora Mexico Temple is the 72nd operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and the 4th temple completed in Mexico. This temple is located on the eastern side of Hermosillo in the distinguished Pitic neighborhood, directly north of the stake center for the Hermosillo Mexico Pitic Stake. The temple faces Avenida Pedro García Conde, a beautifully landscaped boulevard with a center island featuring flowers, mature trees, benches, and red pavers.


History

The groundbreaking ceremony for the Hermosillo Sonora Mexico Temple was held on the same day as the groundbreaking ceremony for the Columbia South Carolina Temple.

Members were so eager to help during the construction of the Hermosillo Sonora Mexico Temple that they landscaped the boulevard in front of the temple and planted many flowers.

During the five-day public open house held for the Hermosillo Sonora Mexico Temple, 10,543 guests toured the building.

The Hermosillo Sonora Mexico Temple was dedicated by President Gordon B. Hinckley—the day after he dedicated the Ciudad Juarez Mexico Temple—in four sessions on February 27, 2000. He and his wife, Majorie, were accompanied by Elder Henry B. Eyring of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Kathleen, and Elder Lynn A. Mickelsen, president of the Mexico North Area, and his wife, Jeanine. There were 5,898 grateful members in attendance.
