** More details are with the Archbishop.
* A Priest or Monk can have a maximum of four (4) mentees. [2 Novices-in-training and 2 Acolytes preparing for promotion]
* All Priests or Monks are responsible for the well-being of their students. Meaning, you will have to provide for yourself and your kids; it's like raising them.
* A Novice trainee or an Acolyte trainee is only assigned to one (1) mentor. Unless the mentor meets an untimely death, the Novice or Acolyte must inform the Archbishop ASAP.
* When a mentee graduates (knows all the skills he/she needs), that mentee is then released from the custody of the teacher. The teacher no longer has any further responsibilities on the former student.
