Guam - The Southwest Regional Director of the Survivors Network for those Abused by Priests (SNAP), Joelle Casteix, is coming to Guam to hold confidential support group meetings, schedule drop-in hours for concerned victims and supporters, and organize public events to draw attention to and foster an open dialogue about the issue of child sex abuse in the Archdiocese of Agana.

Casteix has written two letters to Archbishop Anthony Apuron calling full disclosure of priests or clergy on island who have sexually abused children.  The Archbishop however has said no clergy has been convicted or accused of such crimes.  Casteix, who is a victim herself, will be on Guam Monday.
