In a 2017 interview with Crux Catholic Media, Father Damián Astigueta, Professor of Canon Law at the Pontifical Gregorian University, provided insight on one population of Catholics who leave the church: "laicization,” or the removal of priests from clerical duties. He described the grounds for dismissal from the clerical state, as well as recent modifications to such criteria under Pope Francis. On March 27, Mara Willard will visit the Boisi Center for a luncheon colloquium on the practices and identities of Catholics who have left the church.
