A southern Philippine diocese has informed the public that one of its priests is no longer a Catholic.
Bishop Cerilo Casicas of Marbel said that Father Alan Catigbay has already left the Catholic Church.
“He has decided to join another religion,” Bishop Casicas said in a circular released March 15. “We continue to pray for Father Catigday.”
The bishop enjoined the Catholics “not to participate in Masses and other Sacraments” that the former priest celebrates.
“These are not of the Catholic Church,” he said.
The circular stopped short of identifying what religion Father Catigbay joined.
