All sessions of the April conference will be broadcast on KSL-Channel 5 and BYUtv, and streamed live across the globe on broadcasts.ChurchofJesusChrist.org. Sessions will also be available via the Gospel Library, the Latter-day Saints Channel, radio, satellite and other digital outlets.
SALT LAKE CITY — The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints will once again hold its General Conference sessions in a virtual setting this spring.
"The April proceedings will mirror the October 2020 general conference: The broadcast will originate from the Conference Center Theater on Temple Square, only the speakers and their spouses for a given session will be present in the meeting, and the music will be prerecorded from previous general conferences," a news release from the Latter-day Saint Church says.
General Conference sessions normally bring thousands of visitors to Salt Lake City as many LDS faithful like to attend the sessions in-person. But the COVID-19 pandemic has forced the church to cancel in-person attendance at the semiannual conferences since last spring.
“As a worldwide organization, we have an obligation to be good citizens and to act with caution as it relates to such a unique setting as general conference, which traditionally brings thousands of visitors to Salt Lake City from around the globe,” the news release states, citing the Latter-day Saint Church's First Presidency.
General Conference sessions will be available for viewing online and through various broadcasts.

“It is clear from the historical, archaeological, and indeed all the points of view that the actual site of Jesus Christ’s baptism (in the Jordan River) is on the Jordanian side. Traditionally, historically and according to the Bible, it is on this side,” Pizzaballa told Catholic News Service in an interview at the Latin Patriarchal Vicarate in the Jordanian capital.
He also spoke of the church’s continued work with Syrian and Iraqi refugees in Jordan during the COVID-19 pandemic.
St. John’s Gospel records John the Baptist’s baptism of Jesus at Bethany, east of the river, or Bethany Beyond the Jordan. Some 31 miles west of Amman and six miles north of the Dead Sea, Bethany Beyond the Jordan receives more than 100,000 Christian and other pilgrims yearly, according to the Jordan Tourism Board. UNESCO designated Bethany Beyond the Jordan as a World Heritage Site.
