Joseph Smith’s “Lecture on the Priesthood” to the Nauvoo Relief Society

04.28.2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm MDT

Event Navigation

The focus will be on Joseph Smith’s “Lecture on the Priesthood” given 175 years ago on this date to 200 Relief Society sisters in a never-to-be-forgotten experience.

With unmistakable foreboding, the Prophet predicts that his mission is coming to a close and that he must deliver the keys of the priesthood to the key leaders of the Church. He tells the sisters that they, too, in time, will receive authority from the priesthood to perform temple ordinances.
