Commemoration of Priesthood Revelation

There will be a 30 year commemoration of the revelation extending the priesthood to all worthy males, which occurred on June 1, 1978, in the Salt Lake Temple. The revelation was ratified and announced on June 8, 1978.

The celebration will be held on Sunday, June 8, at 7 p.m. in the Salt Lake Tabernacle.

Elder Sheldon F. Child of the Seventy will be the speaker for this event, with several Church members also giving inspirational messages. A multicultural choir will be performing under the direction of Mack Wilberg. During the celebration, the Church will present a short video commemorating the momentous revelation.
