LDS Church Confirms President Monson & Elder Hales Will Not Attend October Conference


Due to limitations related to age, 90 year old President Thomas S. Monson will not attend this October General Conference. On Thursday the LDS church also announced that Elder Robert D. Hales has been hospitalized for several days and also will not be attending this October’s General Conference.

President Monson was briefly hospitalized after the April 2017 General Conference.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement in May, regarding President Monson’s health:

Because of limitations incident to his age, President Monson is no longer attending meetings at the Church offices on a regular basis. He communicates and confers with his counselors on matters as needed. President Monson is grateful that the work of the First Presidency and Quorum of the Twelve Apostles continues without interruption. He appreciates the prayers and support of Church members.

Please pray for our beloved prophet and apostles!
