The Archdiocese of Agana remains committed to bringing restoration and healing to all victims of clergy sex abuse. This according to a recent press release which acknowledged the most recent lawsuits against the Church.
The release states, “The Archdiocese takes sexual abuse very seriously. We care deeply about every person who steps forward and we look forward to full resolution of all cases.” Resolution could come soon for the majority of the cases as parties expressed optimism now that Oregon-based retired federal judge Michael Hogan has agreed to serve as a mediator. Hogan will be on island late October. The Church meanwhile, through Hope and Healing Guam, will continue to provide pastoral care and therapeutic counseling for all victims. The number to call is 1-888-649-5288.
