17 March 2024 Live Local Event with Online Prerecorded Video

Worldwide Relief Society Devotional


President Russell M. Nelson and the Relief Society General Presidency — President Camille N. Johnson, Sister J. Anette Dennis, and Sister Kristin M. Yee — will speak to women during a worldwide Relief Society devotional on Sunday, March 17, 2024.

The devotional will commemorate the purpose and founding of the Relief Society, which took place on March 17, 1842. All members of Relief Society and young women turning 18 in 2024 are invited to participate. Following the short devotional messages, sisters will have the opportunity to participate in a local testimony meeting where they can share their faith in Jesus Christ.

Stake or ward Relief Societies are encouraged to gather for the devotional and testimony meeting on the evening of Sunday, March 17. Where travel constraints make gathering in the evening difficult, members may wish to gather in person at another time that day. Leaders are also encouraged to stream the devotional and testimony meeting to those who cannot attend in person. Relief Society sisters can connect globally through social media with the hashtag #JesusChristIsRelief.

The brief prerecorded video will be available several days before the event in American Sign Language, Cantonese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. Closed captioning is available in English on supported devices.

The video can be accessed at the ChurchofJesusChrist.org broadcast page and in Gospel Library. The video may also be streamed on-demand from:
