Age requirements for Franciscan communities?

I am 38, will be 39 in July. I was wondering if I would still make it within the age requirements for the various Franciscan religious communities. I am also looking for communities that are unambiguously loyal to the Holy Father and Magisterium. Thank you.

In Christ,

You will need to contact the vocation directors of each community. Age requirements vary between religious communities.

It can also vary by province within a religious community.

As Br. David said you must contact the community your looking at. But dont let your age discourage you because older men than you have gotten in before.
