…since I have been here, I have never received a financial report from the Archdiocese of Agana. Therefore, I request a copy of at least the most recent financial report that was made. If there is none, please have a report prepared for the last fiscal year. - Archbishop Charles D. Balvo, Apostolic Delegate.
With my letter of August 21, 2007, I brought this fact to the attention of the Ordinaries of both the New Zealand Catholic Bishops Conference and of the Episcopal Conference of the Pacific (CEPAC). I am attaching a copy of that letter and of the norms to be followed in preparing the financial statement. I noted that, as of that time, I had not received such a statement from the Archdiocese of Agana.
Last year, with my letter of June 15, I sent you a copy of the circular letter from the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples regarding certain rules that govern both the subsidies granted by the Pontifical Mission Societies and diocesan finances in general. A copy is attached. Once again, I noted that I had not received a financial statement from the Archdiocese of Agana.
