We've been getting quite a few comments and inquiries on how to get involved with the Concerned Catholics of Guam. The officers wish to thank you for the overwhelming support. They will be meeting soon to prioritize their objectives and develop a plan of action. They will need people for ad hoc committees for each of the areas.
