TODAY'S PACIFIC DAILY NEWS


Church disclosure urged

A group calling itself Concerned Catholics of Guam last week published a notice in the Pacific Daily News, calling on the Archdiocese of Agana to publish audited financial statements annually on the Internet, like other Catholic churches in the country have done.
