Mormon leader sets schedule

President Gordon B. Hinckley of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has set his schedule for his coming visit.

He will attend the dedication of a $5 million-plus beautification project at 10:30 a.m. Oct. 25.

The project targets Hale La'a ("sacred house") Boulevard in La'ie, which runs mauka from Kamehameha Highway to the temple that was dedicated in 1919.

Among the plans are an enclosed meditation garden on the beach-front end of Hale La'a; burying utility lines; erecting blue-rock walls around the meditation garden and lining both sides of the boulevard; a new traffic roundabout in front of the temple; adding a parking lot opposite La'ie Elementary School; and adding a drop-off lane on both sides of the school.

While here, the 94-year-old Hinckley and his wife will also attend ceremonies marking the 40th anniversary of the Polynesian Cultural Center, participate in a community parade immediately after the groundbreaking, and address a special gathering of members of the church living in the region on Oct. 26.

Deacon meeting begins Friday

The 10th annual convention of Catholic North American Korean-American Deacons and the second annual Convention of Asia-Pacific Deacons will begin here Friday and run through Oct. 28.

Highlights include lectures by Bishop Francis X. DiLorenzo, diocesan theologian the Rev. Marc Alexander and deacon Ed Cho. Events will be at the St. Stephen's Diocesan Center and St. George Church in Waimanalo.
