Accused priest has until Friday to return to Guam

Posted: Jun 11, 2018 4:54 PM Updated:

Former Chancellor, Father Adrian Cristobal, has until the end of the week to return to Guam or face sanctions by the Church. As we reported, Father Adrian stands three times accused of clergy sexual abuse.

Though he was reportedly sent to the Diocese of Phoenix to study canon law, the accusations prompted the Archdiocese of Agana to demand his return home and limit his faculties as a priest.

Specifically, he cannot celebrate mass or hear confession.

His deadline to return to Guam is Friday, June 15th.

In an emailed statement to KUAM, the Archdiocese writes "We pray he does the right thing and complies."
