The 9,794-square-foot Helena temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will be formally dedicated on June 18.

The public is invited to see the temple during open houses that run 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily, except Sundays, through June 3 on 4.5 acres at 1260 Otter Road in Treasure State Acres in north Helena. The tours are free with no reservations needed. More information is available at https://bit.ly/3BscbOh. After that, the temple will be closed to the general public.

The building is the first Church of Jesus Christ temple built through the “design-manufacture-install” (DMI) process.

Church officials five years ago announced the construction of 133 new houses of the Lord, a news release states. This prompted church leaders to consider ways to speed up construction while maintaining the same high-quality craftsmanship.
