We in Thrissur Diocese bring in the Acolytes of the Churches in the diocese twice a year for refreshing their memory on how an Acolytes should do his duties in the Church. No one is allowed to be in the Altar if he does not attend at least one meeting in a year. We also have regular examinations conducted to refresh the memory of things in the Acolytes Handbook published by the diocese (this was recommended by the Holy Episcopal Synod for use in all dioceses and was distributed among Their Graces the Metropolitans. Delhi diocese has reprinted it for to be used by their Acolytes).

We need to learn that cultural element in every thing we do in our life and particularly in worship. There is nothing in worship that it can be done this way or that way, only the proper organized way.
