U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Faris has scheduled a settlement conference for all parties involved in the Archdiocese of Agana Bankruptcy Case for Oct. 30 and 31.

The Judge says no one will be excused from attending without a written request and his approval.

All settlement conference statements and communications will be kept confidential.

The local Archdiocese filed for bankruptcy following an onslaught of child sexual abuse cases filed against local Catholic priests.
