Church Updates Temple Policy: Single Mormon Men Over 30 and Divorcees Can Now Officiate Temple Ordinances


Last week, the Church sent an updated policy to temple presidents stating that divorced Latter-day Saints and single men over 30 in the Church can now serve as temple ordinance workers.

Previously, divorced men and women underwent a waiting period before being able to serve as temple ordinance workers and single men could serve as temple ordinance workers through age 30.

Now, both men and women can serve beyond age 31 and divorcees can serve in the 157 temples around the world without a waiting period, according to the Deseret News.
