June 06, 2016

Pope Francis has named Archbishop Savio Tai Fai Hon, the secretary of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, as apostolic administrator of the Archdiocese of Agaña, Guam, responding to a series of abuse allegations against Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron.

Archbishop Apuron, 70, has led the archdiocese since 1986. While Archbishop Apuron remains archbishop of Agaña, Archbishop Hon, as apostolic administrator, has been given temporary authority to govern the archdiocese.

The archdiocese has vigorously denied the allegations against Archbishop Apuron.
