    Father Duenas High School students are back to school. I also got two younger children attending Catholic School. As a payer of their school tuition fees I expect Archbishop Apuron Restricted/Banned from entering the school premises at any given time.

    "I have no doubt that Anthony Apuron can be considered a serial child molester who has perpetrated his criminal sexual conduct behavior undetected and/or unreported over many years."

    Thank you for your comment which I echo with modifications, Anonymous at 12:09 AM.

    As the Grandmother of two children currently enrolled in a Catholic school, I EXPECT and DEMAND that Anthony Sablan Apuron will be RESTRICTED and/or BANNED from entering the premises of ALL Catholic schools and/or nurseries at any given time.

    There have been comments on this blog that Anthony Sablan Apuron will not be returning as Archbishop. As far as I'm concerned, that is nothing more than speculation or wishful thinking.

    Until Apuron is removed — for me, preferably LAICIZED! — there is that possibility that he will return triumphant, with claims of having been exonerated by Rome "for sure, for sure," as previously declared by former SARC Claros in December 2014 and recently reported from the pulpit.

    Should Anthony Sablan Apuron be allowed to return to his position at the Chancery, the Administrators at all the Catholic nurseries, elementary, middle and high schools should heed the professional opinion as cited in the comment above. They must protect the students in their care from any contact with Anthony Sablan Apuron.
