Ousted priest leaves Guam

Guam - Father John Wadeson is no longer on Guam. It was on Tuesday Archbishop Anthony Apuron took action against Father Wadeson who was twice accused of child molestation in California.

Father Wadeson became a part of the Archdiocese of Guam in 2000.

Four years later his name appeared in a list of accused priests and he was banned from the Los Angeles Archdiocese.

Although he was not convicted these allegations were brought to light by the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests who wrote to Apuron expressing their fear for our islands children.

In response Apuron yesterday removed Wadeson from active and public ministry. While no information has been provided as to how long the archbishop was aware of the allegations or where Wadeson ministers at we did learn that he is at the Redemptoris Mater Seminary in Yona. KUAM News has since learned Wadeson left island this morning.
