Steve replied:

Hi, Mary Ann —

I want to request a list of seminaries that I can enroll in and train as a priest.

I am forty years old and I'm interested in becoming a priest.

Send me information if you can.

Steve

Mary Ann replied:

Steve —

Speak to your bishop about this. He can help you find a seminary.

Mike replied:

Hi, Steve —

I addition to your original question, another good one is:

  • What is the maximum age that the Church would consider a man for the priesthood?

To be honest, I don't know. Maybe my one of my other colleagues or priest-friends knows.

Fr. Jonathan, our priest/canon lawyer contact replied:

Mike,

Let Steve know that last year in the diocese of Atlanta, they ordained a 70 year old man!
