The People of God » The Christian Faithful » Sacred Ministers or Clerics » Loss of the Clerical State
Canon 290. Once validly received, sacred ordination never becomes invalid. A cleric, nevertheless, loses the clerical state:

1. by a judicial sentence or administrative decree, which declares the invalidity of sacred ordination;

2. by the penalty of dismissal lawfully imposed;

3. by rescript of the Apostolic See which grants it to deacons only for grave causes and to presbyters only for most grave causes.
