Aaronic Priesthood Restoration Commemoration

This Friday, May 15th is the anniversary of the restoration of the Aaronic Priesthood. On this day in 1829, in answer to their fervent prayers, John the Baptist appeared to Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery and ordained them to the Aaronic Priesthood. He layed his hands upon them and said,

"Upon you my fellow servants, in the name of Messiah, I confer the Priesthood of Aaron, which holds the keys of the ministering of angels, and of the gospel of repentance, and of baptism by immersion for the remission of sins; and this shall never be taken again from the earth until the sons of Levi do offer again an offering unto the Lord in righteousness. " Joseph Smith History 1:69
