Guam - KUAM News has confirmed that Archbishop Anthony Apuron has signed an official Decree of Removal related to Father Paul Gofigan. It was in July the Archbishop replaced Father Gofigan as the Parochial Administrator of Santa Barbara Church in Dededo. According to news files, the Archbishop removed him from the position because he did not follow a directive two years ago to fire a church employee who was known to have a sex offense on his record. Father Gofigan wrote a letter to his parishioners at the time stating that he did terminate the employee. However a press release from the Archdiocese of Agana stated the individual still had an active presence in the parish as a volunteer.
