General Conference sessions to be shown at local church
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Fairfield is welcoming the public to view sessions of its 183rd Semiannual General Conference that will be broadcast worldwide over satellite television and the Internet.
The general meeting of the Relief Society of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is being broadcast at 7 p.m. Saturday.
The Relief Society is the largest and oldest women’s organization in the world, It was instrumental in saving lives and feeding many people in World War II-torn Europe and has continually helped provide relief and spiritual unity to millions of women.
Also at 7 p.m. Oct. 5, for the first time in its history, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will broadcast the priesthood session of its general conference live on television and online.
The LDS Church said the priesthood session for men and boys would be broadcasted on BYUtv, as well as online on LDS.org and the Mormon Channel. The change came, the church said in a press release, in an effort to “make general conference proceedings more accessible to members around the globe.”
The meetings inspire women and men to raise the bar, the standards to live by, said J. Mike McConeghey of Fairfield.
