Guam - The Archdiocese of Agana is still studying allegations that were raised last week by the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.  Deacon Jeff Barcinas tells KUAM News the Archdiocese still has no comment at this time, but they do anticipate issuing a statement possibly next week. 

SNAP Southwest Regional Director Joelle Casteix said she spoke to several victims of sexual abuse by clergy on Guam and even named Father Randy Nowak as an accused abuser when he worked in New York decades ago before coming to the island.   Archbishop Anthony Apuron has said in the past that no clergy members have been charged or convicted of sexual abuse on Guam.
