Do you know of sexual abuse within our Church?

575

The Archdiocese of Agana cares deeply about the protection of minors and all people entrusted to its care. Sexual abuse is a matter of the gravest concern, as Our Lord calls us to protect the most innocent and vulnerable among us – our children. We take the protection of children very seriously.

Archbishop Savio Hon Tai Fai, SDB, the Apostolic Administrator of Agana has appointed Deacon Leonard Stohr to be the Sexual Abuse Response Coordinator (SARC) for the Church on Guam.

We encourage all persons who have knowledge of sexual abuse by clergy or others in our Archdiocese, today or in the past, to contact Deacon Len at this hotline number: 727-7373. You may also e-mail him at deaconlen1@gmail.com

Our Archdiocese pledges to correct the wrongs and mistakes of the past. We are strengthening our sexual abuse and sexual misconduct policy so that all people – most especially our young and most vulnerable – may be confident of being in a safe environment fully protected from any harm.
