Effective yesterday, Redemptoris Mater Seminary rector Father Pius Sammut was relieved of his duties. In an emailed statement to KUAM News he says, "Last Saturday, August 27, Archbishop [Savio] Hon [Tai Fai] called me to inform me that he will relieve me from the rectorship. I accepted immediately because I believe in obedience."
In the interim, Monsignor David C. Quitugua has been appointed acting rector of the RMS.
Pius served as rector of the RMS since last November. He tells KUAM News his next move is to head to Europe to speak with his religious superiors.
