Boston Stake Center
Each stake holds two Stake Conferences during the year as scheduled by the President of the Quorum of the Twelve. In most parts of the world, the Stake President presides at one Stake Conference, and an assigned Area Seventy or General Authority presides at the other. The primary purpose of stake conference is to strengthen faith and testimony. Another purpose is to conduct stake business.
In some Stake Conferences, a satellite broadcast may be incorporated into the Sunday General Session. This broadcast will include instruction by General Authorities. When a satellite broadcast is used, that conference takes the place of the Stake Conference at which an Area Seventy or General Authority would have presided.
When a new Stake President must be called before a regularly scheduled Stake Conference, a special stake conference may also be held.
A meeting of the Area Seventy or General Authority (if assigned), Stake Presidency, Stake Clerk, and Stake Executive Secretary.
A Priesthood Leadership Meeting attended by the Area Seventy or General Authority (if assigned) and certain brethren (listed in Church Handbook, 18.3.3). Note: This meeting may be held on either Saturday or Sunday as determined by the presiding authority.
A Saturday Evening Session for all members of the stake who are 18 years of age and older. Temple Presidents, Stake Patriarchs, and Full-Time Mission Presidents or their representatives who attend should sit on the stand. Depending on local circumstances, this session may be held on Sunday if approved by the Presiding Authority.
A General Session held on Sunday for all members and church investigators. Temple Presidents, Stake Patriarchs, and Full-Time Mission Presidents or their representatives who attend should sit on the stand. More than one Sunday General Session may be held if facilities are not adequate to seat everyone in the same session. Primary Children attend this session with their families, not in a separate meeting.
If necessary, conference sessions may be broadcast to other locations in the stake.
