Rituals and Worship

Sacred Time

Mormons mark sacred time with weekly meetings, semi-annual Church conferences, and temple rituals that take them beyond profane time.

Sacred Space

Mormons create sacred space within homes, chapels, temples, and even map sacred spaces onto natural and man-made geographical features.

Rites and Ceremonies

Mormons employ rites that range from familiar Christian rituals of baptism and Eucharist, to uniquely Mormon rituals performed on behalf of deceased ancestors.

Worship and Devotion in Daily Life

Mormons enjoy active devotional lives at all stages of life through daily scripture study and prayer and multiple weekly activities with other Church members.


Mormons share some symbols with other Christian groups but the richest and most unique religious symbols of Mormonism are displayed in connection with the Church's temples.
