CWN Editor's Note: Born in 1945, Archbishop Anthony Sablan Apuron, a Capuchin Franciscan, was ordained to the priesthood in 1972 and to the episcopate in 1983. Two years later, he was named apostolic administrator of Agaña, Guam, and the following year, he became archbishop. “The penalties imposed are as follows: the privation of office; the perpetual prohibition from dwelling, even temporarily, in the jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Agaña; and the perpetual prohibition from using the insignia attached to the rank of Bishop.”
