A MATTER OF THE ARCHBISHOP'S MORAL AND ETHICAL RESPONSIBILITY

Maria has left a new comment on your post "PACIFIC DAILY NEWS - JULY 3, 2014": 

It really no longer matters to us, concerned Catholics, whether our Archdiocese falls under any rules or polices that require or do not require our Church to comply with financial reporting; rather at this point and time, we Catholics, are simply and plainly requesting Archbishop Apuron to publicly present a financial report and statement on an annual basis for financial transparency.

It is not out of the Archbishop’s need to comply with any sort of civil regulation nor of a Church ruling that concerned Catholics are posing this request to the Archbishop; rather it is the matter of the Archbishop’s simple moral and ethical responsibility; the matter of Christian decency and it is the matter of his plain consideration and regard for the Catholic congregation of this Archdiocese -- the families, individuals, youth, young adults, ministry and apostolate group members, the businesses and community members -- who have contributed and made numerous sacrifices to be able to financially support, donate toward and sustain OUR CATHOLIC CHURCH on Guam because we love our Catholic Faith and Church!

To refuse this request and to resort to ANY excuse, or reason not to address and grant our request for an annual financial report and statement would be an outright arrogant disregard for and an affront to the Catholic congregation of our island of Guam.

    1. Well said, Maria! Nothing left for the Archbishop to do but to comply OR RESIGN!
      and for us concerned Catholics, all we can do is let our feelings be known by NOT
      giving another cent UNTIL we get a full accounting of where our previous contributions
      went from year 2012 to the present.

  2. As nice as this comment is, the Archbishop doesn't intend to publish any financial report. He wants to meet with the group Concerned Catholics. For more retribution perhaps?
    Looks like he's got a lot to hide....check out guampdn.

  3. Funny how Archbishop Apuron kept silent until now. The kettle on the stove is getting hotter! You should have come out in the open Archbishop, why wait until it hit the paper? Tsk!! Tsk! You didn't want to meet us or say anything when this blog began! Not you, not Diana! What makes you think we want to meet with you now?

    I am not a member of this particular group, but will most certainly back them up when support is needed! BIBA CHAMORRO!

  7. Concerned Catholics more power to you. Let the truth prevail. Demand the audit report. Demand the financials. We have a right to know how archbishop. Spends our money. We pay for him to fly business class, we pay for his seminarians who will not serve Guam. We want answers. We demand to know why local sons of Guam have be turned away from priesthood. We will hold you responsible and if we find you have been dishonest we will call for your resignation archbishop. Days of laity silence are over. We demand answers.

    1. If Archbishop Apuron goes, what will happen with NEO presbyters and seminarians ....will they want to stay? How can NEO presbyters function the way they were trained without the support of Only NEO Bishop? Many problems on the horizon! One day at a time. God Bless us all.
