Bishops are free to publish their ad limina reports; but they prefer to keep them secret.
Three years ago the Association of Catholic Priests, the Association of Catholics in Ireland and We Are Church Ireland, wrote a joint letter to all the Irish bishops requesting them to make public their quinquennial reports to the Vatican. These reports are sent to the Vatican a few months before diocesan bishops go to Rome for their meetings with the pope every five years (ad limina visits). They provide a detailed state of affairs of each diocese, according to a template supplied by the Vatican. This request was made jointly by the three groups to increase transparency and a greater involvement of all the People of God in every aspect of the church.
