Presiding Bishopric instructions "that as near as circumstances will permit boys be ordained as follows: Deacons at twelve, Teachers at fifteen and Priests at eighteen years of age." For the first time, the Aaronic Priesthood offices are conferred generally on teenage boys, although age intervals later change to twelve, fourteen, and sixteen.
