After much lazy procrastination, I finally sent off my "Declaration of Defection" to the local diocese and am waiting to hear back. Does anyone have any experience with this? I think there are 3 major possibilities for a result.
1) They ignore it and do nothing.
2) They simply process it and tell me it is done.
3) (I've heard rumours that this happens) Someone will ask me to visit to discuss my choice.
I'm hoping for option 3.
Reminds me of the episode of Friends where Ross and Chandler wanted to quit the gym but weren't able to.
In my experience they just make excuses ... say things like, "it's up to the priest of that parish"
