I've just come upon this blog and just in time--I hope you're still up and running. I'm going to post nonetheless.

I have been discerning a vocation to the religious life. After researching the orders, I'm noticing that most have age limits and I've just turned 50.

Do the orders ever make exceptions to their age guidelines?

Dear Lauran,
There are sometimes exceptions to the age rules when it comes to joining orders, however, it is dealt with on a case by case basis. If you know which order you feel called to, you should contact them to discuss whether they might consider you as a candidate despite your being past the age limit. God Bless.

Hello Matthew -

Very nice blog. I love your pic of the sisters praying around the altar. It's hard to tell if the Blessed Sacrament is exposed.
I am a permanent deacon candidate - in formation. Was installed as "Lector: last May, will be installed as "Acolyte" this coming November. God willing, ordination in 2011.

God bless you - thanks for this important blog!

The Olivetan Benedictines have 50 as their cut-off,but they do consider older vocations especially if the person is in good health.
