Do we know why they cut off at 35? Some of us over that age have quite a bit of experience to offer the Church

Dear Anonymous

As far as I know, it may be possible, but I think you would need to contact the Vocations director. I know someone who entered that is over 35 but it doenst seem to be the norm. I assume they must judge it on a case by case basis.

But persevere! I will say a prayer for your discernment.
