The Church encourages members to schedule temple appointments as well as cancel appointments that you cannot keep. You are still welcome to attend the temple without an appointment, but you may have to wait for an available opening or you could participate in another available ordinance.

Scheduling appointments helps maintain a house of order that improves the temple experience for everyone, especially during times of increased demand and attendance. Priority is given to members with appointments.

How to Schedule Temple Appointments for Proxy Work

You can reserve an appointment online, in the Member Tools app, or by calling the temple. (Look up phone numbers at temples.ChurchofJesusChrist.org.)

Making online reservations:

  1. In the main navigation on ChurchofJesusChrist.org, select Serve and then Temples. (Or you can go directly to temples.ChurchofJesusChrist.org.)
  2. Click the Appointments icon. (If you haven’t already signed in with your Church account and password, it will then prompt you to do so.)
  3. You will then be able to choose which proxy ordinance you would like to do (baptism, initiatory, endowment, or sealing) and be guided through the process of selecting a date and time.

Watch an instructional video in many languages.

Please contact the temple directly to schedule living ordinances.
