In today's excellent investigative PDN story by Haidee V Eugenio, Archdiocese of Agana Apostolic Administrator, Archbishop Savio Hon Tai Fai appears to not know much about Fr. Louis Brouillard. Brouillard was accused this past Monday by 73 year old Leo Tudela of molesting him when he was an altar boy in Mangilao in the late 1950's.
It's too bad Archbishop Hon treated the Concerned Catholics of Guam with disdain at his first meeting with them on January 8, 2015.
At that meeting, CCOG President, Greg Perez, attempted to tell Archbishop Hon about the many issues facing the Guam Church. Hon ridiculed Perez and the CCOG, accused them of "spreading propaganda and promoting division, and told them they had no authority to investigate the church or Apuron.
He told Perez that the "Vatican would do things their way," and to send any information he had DIRECTLY to him.
Well that is exactly what Perez did.
At the meeting, Perez handed Hon a 64 page report, painstakingly prepared by the CCOG in the hopes that Hon would actually do something with the information. In the report was a section titled "Sexual Abuse Issues and the Archdiocese of Agana’s Sexual Abuse Policy Deficiency." On page 3 of this section was all the information Hon needed to know about Brouillard, information he now claims NOT to know:
Hon's disdain for Perez and the CCOG was palpable. He ordered Perez to take down the CCOG website and to "not allow people to make comments." He probably then threw the report in the trash the same way he threw the CCOG out of the meeting. And now he pretends he doesn't know.
