Half of the temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have now reopened for proxy ordinance work. This article explains how to schedule appointments to do proxy work.
How to Schedule Temple Appointments for Proxy Work
- In the main navigation on ChurchofJesusChrist.org, select Serve and then Temples. (Or you can go directly to temples.ChurchofJesusChrist.org.)
- 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.)
- 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 the video below for more information. This video is also available in additional languages.
Note that on the first day of each month, temples post appointments for future months. Not all temples are scheduling proxy appointments online. Please contact the temple directly to schedule living ordinances.
Since May 2020, temples of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have been reopening in a cautious, careful way, based on local circumstances and governmental restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Is it possible on the booking site to be able to make an appointment for someone you will take with you other than your spouse – and have a place to enter the name of the person.
No, you can only schedule for your spouse.
You don’t need the other person’s name. Just tell the sister at the front that this person is here for your husband. We do it all the time at the Bountiful temple.
email@example.com. I can get into my Temple site using my password, but when it comes to making a temple appointment for that site, it does not recognise my password.
I would like to make an appointment at the Jordan river temple for proxy work.
I am beyond frustrated.
I have a recommend and I tried to schedule an appointment at Jordan River Temple, but the LDS 365 system is not recognizing me or my Church Membership Number .
For problems logging on, call 1-801-240-HELP.
I need help signing up for temple appointment.
I cannot get into my account. I have tried over and over and even tried by making a new password, by trying the make a new account feature. Yes! I have an account and use it regularly but it will not recognize my user name, only my husband’s and the appointments are under my name ruthrich3 which no longer does anything even using my membership number to identfy myself and OKta Verify
What number do I need to call to schedule a live sealing to my fiancé? We would like to have it scheduled for November 6th 2021 at the Nashville Temple in franklin TN. We know that the temple is scheduled to close on the 8th so we would like to get in before this happens.
Sonja, You will need to call the Nashville Temple to schedule the appointment. You can find the temple phone numbers at http://temples.churchofjesuschrist.org/
Is there a way to schedule an appoint for someone who does not have internet access or a mobile phone? Do I have to have someone reserve a spot and substitute them in their place? I don’t know how to make an appointment for someone else without having to have the person go online for themselves. We have several elderly persons in our ward that are not able to make appointments for themselves.
Sally, you can also schedule appointments by calling the temple.
When we hit this issue, we help that individual sign up for a church account if they do not already have one. If they are attending the temple, and have a recommend, this process is simple as they only need their DOB and record # which is on the recommend.
Then, on any smartphone, tablet or computer with internet access, we logon to churchofjesuschrist.org with that person’s account and help them schedule an appointment.
please direct me to reserve a time to do a temple session (prozy) on Thursday March 3rd/
I am very frustrated. I have tried and tried to schedule an appointment at the Ogden Temple. Every try takes me to the video showing how to do it. I have made several before but now it won’t let me. I called the temple and they say you have to do it online. He,p!
I went on the church’s website to schedule a temple appointment for Logan’s temple and wasn’t able to get an appointment. They showed how to do it, but it wouldn’t let me do it but kept showing me the short video how to do it. So very frustrating!
Kay, you can also schedule appointments by calling the temple.
The Jordan River Temple recorded message says go to the web site – PMHO
How many appointments can you schedule
The st George temple is closed, so I try Cedar City Temple, but most of the slots are filled, months in advance. Do they block out time for the members in their district?
I would like an appointment to the Logan Utah Temple
Can the bishop make appointments for member of his ward ?
I have been trying to get on the temple site to make a temple appointment, but currently nothing comes up. Is there a problem with the sight for making temple ordinance appointments? Thank you Sylvia Deschamps

How does a live person get sealed to their deceased parents.
You must call the temple . This is a live sealing.
I am unable to schedule more than one appointment. I can make an endowment appointment for Friday then when I try to make one for Saturday, I get a message saying I have reached my limit and have to complete the appointment on Friday before I can schedule another one. Doesn’t make any sense. Am I limited to only doing one ordinance before I can schedule another?
If I schedule an appointment a week or two in advance, then have an opportunity to go in a couple of days, it won’t let me schedule it until I have completed the later appointment.
Sorry but I’m a recently baptized male [Jan 2021] I’ve visited my Temple last week in Longueil QC as a witness to baptisms for the dead.
I’ve now some people who have passed but I would like to also baptize them at my temple, I’ve some male and female people who need to be baptized. I also have a female friend a member of the congregation I attend who would be able to do the female people I have as well. I’ve printed out the forms and cut them according to the website in order to have this process done, My friend goes to the temple often but on;y goes at the 7:30PM visit. I would like to do the same but it’s difficult to make the appopintment as I cannot choose the time of 7:30 PM to do this. Any hints?
When trying to set a date for youth baptisms the system show open dates but when I go to that date and try to get a time there are none available. When I try to go back to look for another date the system ask me to resubmit all the information #s etc. Extremely frustrating process. What am I doing wrong. BTW trying to reserve something at the Draper Temple
How can I schedule appointments for a family group to go together?
I have tried repeatedly to get on the site to make an appointment, but the message comes up that this site is not available. Are you having technical issues?
Is there a way to schedule a room and a session for your ward?
I would like to schedule an appointment to do an endowment at the Jordan River Temple for Tuesday, November 30, 2021 around 10:30am if possible – this would be for myself and my neighbor

Please help – I am not good with computers – your help will be appreciated
All appointments need to be made online. Perhaps your ministering sister or Relief Society president could help you.
What is the phone number for assistance in scheduling an endowment session?
I also have a question about West Jordan temple off Redwood Road. Is it currently open?
I haven’t used my Gmail account in years
I have tried to make a Saturday appt at the Cedar City Utah Temple at 12:01 am when the 3th month Appts become available but they are booked immediately. Any suggestions?
i have been trying to schedule an appointment for the temple (Mt. Timpanogos) for 3 days now and it just says “this page npot available”. What do I do or whar am I doing wrong?
Is there a way for me to schedule an elderly person with me in a session. She is unable to schedule for herself.
Can I make another appointment for a different ordinance before the first appointment has happened? Thanks
Sealings? I cannot sign up my spouse. Does number of patrons mean the number of sealings I anticipate completing and who is coming with me?
Yes. You would input how many in total will be there for sealings. You only need to book it once then. For instance, if I were to attend a sealing session with my parents and sister, I would input 3 females and 1 male.
For some odd reason, my temple only allows one initiatory per person per session. It makes no sense. If my sister, mother, and I would like to go at 12:30pm, we can’t all attend together. We have to book each half hour block. I don’t understand why. I’m doing it at the Cardston Alberta temple. Last time we contacted the temple, they said that’s the way it is and we can only book online and they couldn’t help us. I’m beyond frustrated.
How can we best schedule a living ordinance for our sealing?
It’s always so frustrating with this apt stuff. They say you don’t need an apt but you can if you want. But when you don’t have an apt you get to the temple and you can’t ever get in because they never have any room for you so it actually forces you to make apt. Me and my family have been turned away severeal times. Almost giving up. It was so much nicer to just get up and go at anytime. When ya feel prompted to go on the spot, or need to go on the spot for many reasons. I find this apt stuff all very frustrating. My husband and son sat in initories for 2 hours waiting cuz they kept taking apt people and still they never got in. I was turned away last time I walked in cuz all appointments were filled except baptisms later and sealings later but I couldn’t come back later. Left in tears. Somethings got to change here. I use to go to rhe temple once a month but it’s so difficult now. I’m not healthy at times and never know when I’m gonna feel good so I like to wake up and go when I do feel good but can’t cuz I don’t have apt. When i do have apt then i have to always cancel cuz i may not feel good that day. I am not the only one finding this so frustrating!
Do we need an appointment to go to the Draper Temple for proxy work? Can my husband and I just go and hope there’s an opening on a week day?
Having a difficult time scheduling appointments online , doesn’t matter what browser I use, please help !
Hi. To whom it may concern… Do you know the day(s) when the “next three months” for scheduling baptisms is? The last day of the previous third month? The first? Hoping to catch the next 3 months early to have better time options to go. Thanks!
