Concerned Catholics request archbishop file quitclaim

Guam - The Concerned Catholics of Guam has reached out to Archbishop Anthony Apuron through a letter requesting that he file a quitclaim for the property which the Redemptoris Mater Seminary sits. The Redemptoris Mater Seminary was the subject of controversy in the Catholic community as a deed of restriction essentially transferred the property over to the Redemptoris Mater Seminary Corporation raising concerns that the archdiocese no longer controlled the asset.

 CCOG vice president Dave Sablan said, "So there is an alleged violation of canon law here number one; number two if he does have control of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary Corporation then it would not be a problem for him to quitclaim which means I want to move that property back to the Archdiocese of Agana's asset inventory he should be able to do that by signing a piece of paper and filing it with Land Management."

Sablan says the quitclaim would ensure that the Redemptoris Mater Seminary does not fall into hands of other parties not affiliated with the local Catholic Church.
