In the days coming up, The Archdiocese of Agaña will return to the District Court of Guam for the bankruptcy proceedings.

It has been nearly four years since the archdiocese filed bankruptcy in District Court.

The bankruptcy is in relation to numerous allegations of child sexual abuse and lawsuits filed against the archdiocese.

In 2021, Guam’s District Court issued a decision in the Catholic Church bankruptcy case.

Ruling that Catholic schools and parishes are not separate entities but are part of the Archdiocese of Hagatna adding on to their debt.

The archdiocese had a final pretrial conference earlier this morning while the confirmation proceedings are scheduled to take place next Monday, Oct. 3rd, till Friday, Oct. 7th.

The confirmation hearing will be held during that period and the approval of the Fifth Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization could finally be realized.
