Guam - About one  hundred parishioners from all walks of life including local clergy participated in a prayer vigil last night at the steps of the Dulce De Maria Cathedral Basilica in Hagatna while they came together to pray for unity and build bridges within the church.

Parishioner Andy Balajadia shares the sentiment, saying, "I'm here to pray for Father Paul Gofigan, for Monsignor James Benevente and also for the archbishop - I think by coming out here I hope when he sees the number of people out here that he realizes actions of cause, decent they are dividing the Catholics on Guam that we are losing confidence and trust in his leadership."

Parishioners called for peace as a sign aimed directly at Archbishop Anthony Apuron called for parishioners to "tell Archbishop Anthony Apuron enough is enough... it is time to end the climate of fear hurt and division in our catholic church."
