The Urdaneta Philippines Temple will be the third temple built in the Philippines, following the Manila Philippines Temple (1984) and the Cebu City Philippines Temple (2010).


Temple History

Located approximately 100 miles north of Manila on the island of Luzon—the largest and most populated island in the Philippines—the Urdaneta Philippines Temple will help serve the over 100 stakes and districts in the Luzon Island Group currently served by the Manila Philippines Temple.

In June 2011, the Philippines Baguio Mission was relocated to Urdaneta City, which offered a more central and accessible location for the members and missionaries of the mission. Ground was broken in September 2010 for the new mission home and office, which are located next to the recently remodeled and expanded Urdaneta Philippines Stake Center. In June 2013, the Philippines Urdaneta Mission was created from the Philippines Baguio Mission so that missions are now headquartered in both cities.
