On Saturday the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (the Mormons) announced the planned construction of a new Temple in the greater Kansas City area. The only other Temple in Missouri is located in St. Louis.
The location of the new Temple has not been made known by church officials. Upon completion of the Temple, but before it is dedicated, non-Mormons will be able to visit and be provided information on the different functions and ceremonies performed in the Temple.
Once dedicated, only Latter Day Saints in good standing may enter a Temple.
