Sanctions imposed on priest for failure to return to Guam

Posted: Jun 16, 2018 4:23 PM Updated:
The Archdiocese of Agaña imposes sanctions  on no-show Father Adrian Cristobal. The action is taken after Father Cristobal's failure to obey "repeated directives" to return to Guam, following multiple allegations of sexual assault against him.
 
Archbishop Michael Byrnes directed the Priest return by June 15, but he did not comply. Sanctions restrict Cristobal's ability to "act as a priest in public, which includes wearing clerical garb".
 
Father Cristobal is no longer able to celebrate mass nor hear confession.
 
The archdiocese says sanctions will remain in place until the accused priest returns to Guam.
