I had wondered the same thing myself. He hasn't exactly broadcast his departure from St. Thomas'. However, on March 6, he published a somewhat cryptic account of a ceremony
which I understood to be a farewell to St. Thomas', coming as it did, just before the beginning of Lent, when those entering the Ordinariate officially started their journey. The churchwardens laid down their staves at the feet of St. Thomas, etc.
The various comments from readers in the combox confirmed my understanding that this was the farewell.
Perhaps he's trying to avoid acrimony and any appearance of triumphalism but I really don't know.
