The First Presidency of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has identified the site location for the Vitória Brazil Temple.
The location was released Monday, Feb. 27, on ChurchofJesusChrist.org.
Additional information and details for this house of the Lord — including exterior renderings and information about groundbreakings — will be released at a later date.
Planned as a single-story temple of approximately 10,600 square feet, the Vitória Brazil Temple will be built at Avenida Leitão da Silva #2055, Itararé, Vitória-ES.
Nearly 1.5 million Latter-day Saints reside in Brazil, comprising more than 2,100 congregations. Missionary work first began in Brazil in 1928; 50 years later, the country’s first temple — the São Paulo Brazil Temple — was dedicated.
Brazil now is home to nine dedicated and operating temples, which are located in Belém, Campinas, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo. The Brasília Brazil Temple is completed and has been scheduled for its open house and dedication later this year, with another temple in Salvador under construction.
