Police presence expected at seminary protest

Police plan to check on protesters expected at the Redemptoris Mater Seminary in Yona Thursday, after two protests occurred in the past week.
Following a heated protest at the A.B. Won Pat International Airport last Thursday, the Guam Police Department was called to another protest at the seminary Tuesday.


  1. You have to laugh at how the trained lawyer is handling all this if this is her trained advice. What's brother tony have to lose by just confronting his flock? Only people in hiding are known to be hiding the TRUTH.

  2. Can someone ask Tony for more financial updates as promised?

    HAGÅTÑA, Guam (Pacific Daily News, Sept. 27, 2014) – Guam's Catholic Church yesterday made an unprecedented disclosure of its finances, two months after its leadership was publicly challenged to release the information.

    "It is the expressed position of the archdiocese to be transparent in its financial management to the faithful in the (Archdiocese of Agana)," the archdiocese stated yesterday.

    Other Catholic churches in the nation already have publicly disclosed their finances, at the urging of the Vatican.

    The archdiocese publicly disclosed that it had assets of $177 million at the end of June last year. The bulk of its assets involved land, valued at $97.8 million.

    Its buildings, plant and equipment were valued at $66 million, the archdiocese's disclosure states.

    Out of $26 million in revenues for the year, ending in June 2013, the biggest source was from tuition and fees from its schools, totaling $17 million.

    Contributions and church collections added up to $6.7 million during that period.

    More than 64 percent of the archdiocese's revenues flow from tuition and fees from Catholic schools on island.

    Nine elementary, middle and high schools were covered by the archdiocese's financial disclosure.

    Church collections and contributions to the archdiocese make up 25 percent of its revenue source, its disclosure states.

    With nine Catholic schools involved in the disclosure, about 43 percent of the archdiocese's revenues went toward salaries and wages, which reached $11.4 million in one year, through June 2013.

  3. (Cont'd) A group called Concerned Catholics of Guam placed an advertisement in the July 2 edition of the Pacific Daily News, challenging Archbishop Anthony Apuron "to publish annually, beginning with the fiscal year completed on June 30, 2012, an independent auditor's report."

    The archdiocese's disclosure also followed a March 2012 letter from the Vatican's then-representative to the Pacific islands. That letter called for Archbishop Anthony Apuron to submit the archdiocese's financial statements to a Vatican office.

    That office, called Evangelization of Peoples, had expected the archdiocese to submit a financial report in 2011 and in previous years.

    In March 2012, Archbishop Charles Balvo, the Vatican's representative to the Pacific islands, sent Apuron a letter stating the financial report hadn't been submitted.

    The Guam group that called for the public disclosure of church finances brought its concerns to Pope Francis' new Pacific islands representative, Archbishop Martin Krebs, who visited Guam in July.

    The financial report released yesterday was a financial review by the firm Deloitte & Touche, and not an audit.

    "A review is substantially less in scope than an audit, the objective of which is the expression of an opinion regarding the financial statements as a whole," the accounting firm states.

    And because it wasn't an audit, Deloitte & Touche stated in its report, "we do not express such an opinion ... regarding the financial statements as a whole."

    Some of the island's vocal Catholics have expressed support for the public disclosure, in part to clarify concerns over an apparent attempt to transfer one of the church's biggest assets, the former Accion Hotel in Yona, Pacific Daily News files show. The former hotel is being used by the Redemptoris Mater Archdiocesan Missionary Seminary of Guam.

    The financial reports of the seminary will be disclosed separately in its respective website, the archdiocese stated. As of press time yesterday, the seminary's financial disclosure wasn't publicly available on its website.

    The review by Deloitte & Touche includes 26 parishes, nine Catholic schools and the Chancery Office.

    Not included in the review report are Catholic Social Service and the Catholic Cemeteries of Guam Inc.

    "The financials of these organizations will be disclosed separately in their particular websites," the archdiocese said in a statement.

    The archdiocese stated it's continuously working to improve its fiscal management.

    It plans to hire an independent accounting firm to conduct annual financial reviews, beginning with the fiscal year that ended in June this year.

    The archdiocese also made a promise "to have these financial reviews disclosed to the public as soon as they become available."

  4. The KAKA filed Dungbat reveals to all that they are better than our regular Catholic Priest (see its message from its latest blog below)....TSK TSK TSK...

    Dear Anonymous at 12:07 am,

    It is a matter of catching them. A priest gave Tim Rohr that invitation letter. We may not know who he is right now, but God knows who he is. Apparently, this priest has no fear of God.

    1. Dungbat now claiming to be God. LOL

    2. Good Morning anon @ 9.46, thank you so much for sharing this new
      pearl from the Diana.
      This is priceless, and gave me a good belly ache.
      Yes Diana God knows, and that should make you pose and pray...but it does not, does it??

  5. Why don't we use the NCW's invitation to joy as permission to enter RMS? Then we can show the police that we (the real Catholics) were invited to RMS and wanted to check out their facilities. Lol.... Wait I think I was given an invitation. Can I bring others with me now? Lol

  6. Police at the demonstration,ooh those ladies are sooo scary!!! I think I actually saw one wave her poster menacingly at the people driving in. Oh wait a minute, I think she was just fanning herself. But that should be cause enough for the Neos to call in the riot squad, with shields and water cannons. Lou's Outstanding Ladies can get violent you know. Those poor Neos could not sip their Margaritas in peace. How rude that these ladies would try to step into the hotel grounds, I mean seminary grounds and disturb the tranquility that they are so used to. Since we know that RMS is private property as stated by Pius and his attorney in training, we should bring in the paddy wagons.

  7. Diana, did it ever occur to you that other than presbyters The Archbishop does not have the support of the majority of the clergy and religious they realize how serious NCW threatens the Faith. These priests are in the bulls eye of the Archbishop. They will be all eventually replaced or removed from their parishes. The RMS presbyter factory is merrily churning out half baked products. Loyalty is earned not demanded. Diana, AAA really cannot trust anyone, he has lost their respect a long time ago. The public is just now learning how destructive his administration has been all these years. He is a leader in name only, he has not once spoken publicly about what plans he can end the division. He is totally clueless and only echos the instruction given to him by his masters.

  8. "Invitation To Joy"

    This is something that has bothered me for a long time, even before all the controversies erupted: "Invitation To Joy."

    Let's put aside the fact that these "invitations" or testimonies are done in violation of the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM). These people are evangelizing to practicing Catholics during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass!!! How ridiculous is this???!!! Talk about "preaching to the choir."

    "Invitation To Joy" Apparently we Catholics are a bunch of miserable people sitting in the pews worshiping God and praying for our families. Do we not smile? Do we not have joy in our hearts? Apparently not! Apparently a Catholic Mass following the GIRM is not sufficient for worshiping God. Apparently we are missing out on spiritual fulfilment. Apparently we are "missing the boat."

    "Invitation To Joy" No thank you. I will remain content in my misery.

    1. Is Joy the lady who is thrice divorced? Do they want us to meet her? Is Invitation to Joy a Neo dating service? Is Jucutan still attending Saturday Night Fever? Tony, remember the duck?

  9. I still remember the first invitation they handed out in Yigo, it said that Jesus was coming to the church......I guess that without the NEO inviting him, he would not be there....clearly Gnostic, and a cult, since they control where Jesus goes.
