Twice a year, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints participate in a worldwide conference called General Conference. General conference traditionally consists of 5, 2-hour sessions, which are broadcast around the world. During the sessions, Church business is addressed, and the leaders of the Church give speeches on various faith-promoting topics.

The October 2009 conference will be the 179th semi-annual conference, held on Saturday October 3, and Sunday October 4. Saturday will consist of three sessions: 2 general sessions at 10am and 2pm (MDT), and a priesthood session at 6pm. Male members of the Church ages 12 and older attend the priesthood session, which is only broadcast to Church meetinghouses via closed circuit satellite. Sunday consists of two additional general sessions at 10am and 2pm (MDT).

General sessions of the conference are broadcast in many languages on many TV, radio, cable, and satellite systems. Additionally, they can be viewed or heard over the Internet.

The textual transcripts of conference will be made available on the Church’s website on October 8.
