Apuron spotted in YouTube video in Rome

Posted: May 07, 2018 4:03 PM Updated:

Guam's suspended Archbishop Anthony Apuron has been sighted again in Rome, this time for a celebration for the Neocatechumenal Way. A video was posted on the Vatican News YouTube channel on Sunday.

Joining Apuron is Guam's Father Edivaldo Oliveira who is listed on the Archdiocese of Agana's website as a priest on mission.

Both sit among a crowd of bishops on the same stage as Pope Francis.

As reported, Archbishop Michael Byrnes put a halt to any formation of new communities by the Neocatechumenal Way here on Guam. That year-long period, KUAM files show, ended in March.

Earlier this year, the Vatican released its verdict against Apuron finding him guilty of certain charges.

He's since appealed the verdict, with no updates provided to date.

Though the Vatican has rendered a verdict, he still faces five civil lawsuits here at home for clergy sexual abuse at the District Court of Guam.
