I assume you are talking about Catholicism and if you are I think I know the answer. A priest can leave the priesthood and become a layman, the consequences of such a move are that he will no longer be able to perform the holy rites that he has performed while a member of the priesthood except for two of them and only in dire circumstances. In the event of an emergency a former priest may baptize someone or forgive the sins of the dying provided there is an exigent circumstance and no practicing priest is available.0
