The open house for the newly completed Trujillo Peru Temple runs through Saturday, May 30, 2015, except Sundays, May 10, 17, and 24. The cultural celebration will be held Saturday, June 20, and the temple will be dedicated Sunday, June 21, in three sessions.

After the dedication, the temple will be the 147th operating temple in the Church. Dedicatory services will be broadcast at 9:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. to meetinghouses in Peru. The three-hour block of meetings on the 21st will be cancelled so that Latter-day Saints can participate in the sessions.

The temple was announced by the First Presidency in December 2008, and ground was broken September 14, 2011.

The temple will serve more than 88,000 members of the Church in and around Trujillo.
