Beginning October 25, 2021, leaders in selected stakes will issue temple recommends—except recommends for living ordinances—using Leader and Clerk Resources (LCR) to print the recommends. Priesthood leaders may apply a digital signature to these recommends, or they may sign the recommend as is currently done.
Using digital signatures is the most secure method for issuing temple recommends, and where possible, digital signatures should be used. Church leaders expect that by December 13, 2021, all Church units will be using LCR.
In addition, the design of the recommend that unendowed members use to participate in proxy baptisms and confirmations has been updated. The designation “limited-use temple recommend” will no longer be used.
Members who were issued an older-style recommend may continue to use that recommend until it expires.
