Rome temple update

So, I must admit something: I cried today when I found out President Monson went to Rome to celebrate the groundbreaking ceremony for the Rome, Italy temple. To have been part (an exceedingly miniscule part, mind you) of the work that has lead to this great blessing is truly humbling. Kudos to all the missionaries and members that have given their all for the gospel in Italy. This temple is yours. Here's an email from about the groundbreaking. It has a link to an artist's rendering of the temple site, and an estimated completion date: 2013.

Dear Rome Italy Temple Mailing List subscribers:

In conjunction with the groundbreaking ceremony held today for the Rome Italy Temple, the Church has launched an official website revealing details of the plans for the temple complex, which will feature a stake center, patron housing facility, family history center, and visitors center, all surrounded by meticulous landscaping. An inspiring video presentation has been created, which displays the future complex from a variety of angles.





Kindest regards,

Rick Satterfield
