Leaving priesthood

A priest of long-standing leaves priesthood. Not a word about it on the official website of the diocese.

Maybe that's what the priest wants, but if not, is that the way things should be done?

It's the time of year when bishops make changes in personnel. Most dioceses announce the changes on their websites. It would seem the ideal platform to tell the people of the diocese about a man leaving priesthood.

That's not the way the Catholic Church works. A pity.
