Well, I guess our Priesthood session will be smaller this year - ice cream treats not withstanding.

True. But if you leave out "and online" this is number two for television. The General Priesthood Meeting held April 1968 was broadcast publicly through KSL radio and television and received throughout a wide area of Utah and adjacent states.

I attended the meeting at the stake center with my father and brothers. Mom watched it at home with my sisters.

I suppose many of the overanxious news media reporters may be forgiven for not doing their homework. Nearly all of them are too young to remember such an event, or even why it happened.

Very interesting. We invite non-LDS males and unordained males to attend the priesthood session. If a woman walked into the chapel, I'm not sure if anyone would evict her. But as the Church statement states, tickets to attend the session in person are restricted.

It's only been within the last year or two that they've made audio and video of the Priesthood Session available for download. Previously, you could only download the text. I'm happy to see more progress this soon. I just wonder if there will be "pressure" to attend the meeting at a stake center rather than staying home for a more convenient/comfortable viewing experience. Personally, I will not miss sitting on a folding chair for two hours and pinching my hands in the mad rush to put the chairs away after the meeting.

I'm sure we're not alone, but our stake presidency uses this meeting for important "priesthood-related" announcements. There's also a fellowship that's at the stake center that you won't get at home - including the ice-cream treats :)

Interesting. I've lived in multiple stakes, and have never heard of this being done. It's not an official stake priesthood meeting, so that seems unusual.

You could be alone as I have also lived in multiple stakes and have never seen this done either.

It happens here, occasionally. I guess this also means we will not need the URL and password to stream it this year in buildings that do not have satellite.

Our stake has often planned some kind of dinner at the Stake Center to go along with the General Relief Society broadcast. They're doing it again this weekend. I have no idea how well-attended this usually is but they still do it, although the broadcasts have been available on TV for several years (but maybe delayed that same evening instead of live).

We have only rarely been offered refreshments after the Priesthood broadcast but attendance has seemed consistent anyway. I suspect the number of men who'll stay home will be significant this time.
