Catholics group demands financial transparency

Guam - The Concerned Catholics of Guam has sent another letter to Archbishop Anthony Apuron requesting financial transparency. "Asking him to give us some idea of how the Archdiocesan appeal for support is going to be used this is the successor to the Catholic Charities' appeal. The Catholic Charities' appeal would go out to the Catholic faithful asking for financial support contributions to take care of our seminarians so they can become priests," said Dave Sablan, vice president of the group.

Sablan says the request for support usually takes place from Ash Wednesday to Easter Sunday at times being extended to meet fundraising objectives. However CCOG is concerned as they contend that the Redemptoris Mater Seminary does not form diocesan priests rather missionary priests therefore the CCOG would like answers as to how the money will be used.
