Announcement of the Apostolic Administrator from the Chancery Office of the Archdiocese of Agaña


I would like to reassure the faithful and all people of good will that Church has taken into serious consideration the allegations made against Archbishop Anthony Apuron, OFM Cap., in recent months by Mr. Walter Denton, Mrs. Doris Concepcion, Mr. Roy Quintanilla, and Mr. Roland Lizama Sondia, and that all of the relevant documentation received by the Church related to these allegations has been duly sent to the Holy See, which has final authority in cases related to Bishops. I would further like to assure everyone that I have recognized the issues raised by all those concerned and, being deeply moved by the way they expressed themselves, am earnestly praying for them, without prejudice to both the alleged victims and the accused and ask for the prayers and support of the entire Church community.

Archbishop Savio Hon Tai Fai, SDB
Apostolic Administrator
Archdiocese of Agaña

June 26, 2016

An initial post, stated the name of one of the alleged victims incorrectly. Instead of Paul Lizama Sondia, the correct name is Roland Lizama Sondia. Sincere apologies for the error.
