Mayor of Le Chesnay welcomes Mormons and their temple to France

LE CHESNAY, France — The invited guests walked under words filled with spiritual meaning for members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints: “Sainteté au Seigneur, La Maison Du Seigneur” — “Holiness to the Lord, The House of the Lord.”

They are inscribed over the entrance to the Paris France Temple, newly completed just outside of Paris here in Le Chesnay, a small city that borders Versailles on a site along Boulevard Saint-Antoine, within walking distance of the beautiful gardens of the Château de Versailles.

It is here that the mayor of Le Chesnay, Philippe Brillault, stood Thursday before a crowd of 100 government, church and business leaders to welcome the Mormons and their temple to France — a greeting nearly 19 years after LDS Church President Gordon B. Hinckley told LDS faithful in France, “The time has come when you deserve to have a temple among you, and we’ll look for a place to build one.”
