The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has announced that President Russell M. Nelson, president of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, will broadcast a live announcement on Tuesday at 9 a.m. Mountain Standard Time.
The message will be shared on all Church broadcast, internet and social media channels in 29 languages. President Nelson’s message will be followed by a press conference at 10:00 a.m. MST.
The church has been without a First Presidency since the death of President Thomas S. Monson, the 16th president of the LDS Church, who died Jan. 2 at the age of 90. His funeral was held Friday in Salt Lake City.
The First Presidency was dissolved upon President Monson’s death. Since then, the church has been led by the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles, a change referred to as “apostolic interregnum.”
The senior apostle of the church has been chosen to be the church’s president throughout its history. President Russell M. Nelson, currently the president of the Quorum of the Twelve, is the faith’s senior apostle.
