The Regina Saskatchewan Temple is the 65th operating temple of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints . It is located in East Regina on Wascana Creek close to the University of Regina but well away from the downtown business district in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada.
Because of issues with transportation, LDS Church president Gordon B. Hinckley's dedication of the Halifax Nova Scotia Temple was delayed a day. Hinckley decided to go ahead with the dedication of the Halifax temple and apostle Boyd K. Packer was sent to dedicate the Regina temple. It was the first time two temples were dedicated the same day, and the first time since the dedication of the Manti Utah Temple in 1888 by Lorenzo Snow that a temple had been dedicated by a person who was not a member of the church's First Presidency.
