President Monson's April 1989 Announcement of Organization of Second Quorum of the Seventy


   In the Saturday Afternoon Session of the April 1989 General Conferece, President Thomas S. Monson announced the organization of the Second Quorum of the Seventy. Those members of the First Quorum who were serving three to five year calls were placed in the Second Quorum.
   With the continued growth of the Church, the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve have determined that the time has come to take additional steps to provide for the expansion and regulation of the Church. We announce, therefore, the organization of the Second Quorum of the Seventy, to become effective immediately.

   The initial membership of the Second Quorum of the Seventy will be those General Authorities currently serving under a five-year call. Additional Brethren will be added to the Second Quorum of the Seventy from time to time and will serve as Seventies and as General Authorities also under a five-year call.

   The First Quorum of the Seventy will continue much as at present, with its members called from the Second Quorum of the seventy or from the priesthood at large
