Calgary Alberta LDS Temple


On Monday we took the kids out of school to spend a special day as a family at the newly completed Calgary Temple. We travelled 3 hours north to Calgary, Alberta to tour this beautiful building and it was such a sweet experience for all of us. The kids had been anticipating the trip for a few weeks and seeing their excitement made my heart happy.


One of the truths we hold dear, as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is the knowledge that family's can be together forever. Inside sacred Temples, covenants are made and families are sealed for time and eternity. Many times throughout my life I've sought the peace and comfort that can be found within the Temple. It was such a sacred experience to share some of our thoughts and feelings about Temples with the children and to feel of the special spirit inside the Temple as a family.


I would like to personally invite any of you who live near the Calgary Temple, to take a the time to visit this beautiful building and to learn a little bit more about what happens inside a Mormon Temple.  

The public is invited to tour the Temple during the open house which runs from 29 September through 20 October 2012, excluding Sundays and Saturday, 6 October. Free reservations for the open house can be made through the www.calgarymormontemple.org website or by calling 1-855-537-2000 or if you would like, I'd be thrilled to mail you a personal invitation. 

Simply send me an email at cooper{dot}rr{at}gmail{dot}com with CALGARY TEMPLE in the subject line and I will mail it to you right away!
