A group of Catholics held a peaceful demonstration Thursday night at the Guam airport, protesting the arrival of Giuseppe Gennarini, who is said to be the highest official of the Neocatechumenal Way in the United States.

Gennarini, along with his wife Claudia, arrived aboard United Airlines Flight 197 which landed on Guam at about 10:30 p.m. Thursday from Japan.

The protesters were from the Concerned Catholics of Guam (CCOG) and the Laity Forward Movement (LFM) who staged their "reception" event at the arrival area at the airport.

According to the members of the groups, they want to let Gennarini know “in no uncertain words and through protest signs that we Catholics in Guam do not appreciate nor welcome the presence, influence and indoctrination that the NCW is making in Guam – havoc, dissension, division within our Catholic faith.” According to the groups, further protest events will be announced and held during Gennarini’s stay on Guam.

LFM is also planning on staging a protest event at the RMS site at Yona against what they say is a “Neo Cardinal” who is coming to Guam to teach "Theology of the Priesthood."
