Dear Archbishop Apuron:

In 2012, an audit of the finances of the Archdiocese of Agana was ordered by Rome at the request of then-Apostolic Delegate to Oceania, Archbishop Balvo. The audit was conducted by the firm Deloitte & Touche. It is our understanding that the audit is now complete. If that is not the case, please apprise us of its current status. If it is complete, please publish the report. 

The publication of diocesan financial statements and audit reports is now common practice. As an example, here is the recent financial statement and audit report published by the Archdiocese of San Francisco. Do you see any reason why our archdiocese cannot do the same? If yes, please tell us why. If not, please publish the report.
