Fast & Temple Weekend • Winter 2016

We invite each of you to strengthen your relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ by participating in a North Star community fast and temple weekend.

Saturday & Sunday, February 27–28, 2016

To see a list of the organized gathering locations, click here.

On Saturday, February 27, we invite you to attend your local temple as part of our quarterly North Star Fast & Temple Weekend.

In some areas with larger LDS populations you can gather with other members of the North Star community for an endowment session. Gathering times and locations are listed below.

If you live in an area where there isn’t a designated gathering or would like to attend on your own, we hope you’ll attend whenever and wherever you would like. If you don’t have a regular temple recommend, we hope you’ll join us in whatever capacity you can:

  • If you have a limited-use recommend, you can perform baptisms for the dead.
  • If you do not have a current temple recommend, you can come enjoy the beauty and serenity of the temple grounds and take time for scripture study, reflection, and prayer.
  • If you do not wish to or cannot attend a temple, you can pray at home and join us in the special fasting portion of the event (see next tab) or add the names of family, friends, or other loved ones to the Temple Prayer Roll (see corresponding tab).

For those who live in certain areas across the country, you are invited to gather collectively as a community in nine key locations as described below. If one of these locations and/or session times are not convenient, please feel free to attend the temple nearest you at a time that meets your schedule.

Additional instructions

  • Please arrive at least 30 minutes early in order to ensure you are able to attend the session with the local North Star community.
  • When you arrive at the temple, a local area coordinator will be there to greet you and provide any needed instruction. Local area coordinator contact information and pictures are provided below in the “Organized gathering locations” section. Feel free to email your coordinator with any questions.
  • If you will be performing baptisms for the dead, please contact your local area coordinator at least one week prior to temple date so he or she can make any necessary arrangements with the temple.

Wherever you are in the world, we invite you to join with the North Star community for a special fast. Fast Sunday will take place Sunday, February 28. Members of the community are encourage to fast for one or more of the following:

  • The general and local church leaders;
  • North Star and the reach of its ministry (that it might grow and bless more lives);
  • That the Lord will bless us, individually and collectively, with greater light and knowledge around sexual and gender identity that will assist His children to make and keep sacred covenants;
  • Greater strength to live with joy and peace in our covenants, values and beliefs as members of the Church;
  • Family, friends, or other loved ones who may be in need of special blessings or assistance—perhaps those you added to the Temple Prayer Roll (see next tab); and/or,
  • Those who may be particularly struggling or vulnerable in their lives, including those who may be suicidal, homeless, or otherwise in need of love and outreach.

We encourage you to submit names of family members, friends, or other loved ones who may be in particular need of support of blessing to your local temple. There are three options:

  • If you attend the temple as part of the North Star Fast & Temple Weekend, submit the names while at the temple;
  • Call your local temple to have the names added to the Prayer Roll; or,
  • Submit your names below (5 name limit), and one of our coordinators will add them to a Prayer Roll for you.
