Line 1: Line 1:
'''Canonical release''' is permission granted by a [[bishop]] to allow one of his [[clergy]] or [[parish]]es to be given into the authority of another bishop.  Because every cleric and parish belongs to a specific bishop, this release must be given in order for allegiance to be changed.  In some instances, if a bishop acts unjustly, a refusal to grant release may be overridden on appeal.
