Seminarian and Priest Education

The future of the Church on Guam depends on our ability as a faithful community to respond positively to the young men who are called to the priesthood. The Archdiocese of Agaña is responsible for the financial support, training, and education of its seminarians and priests. It is responsible for forming priests who will participate in the life of the Church for many years, ministering to the sick and the poor, teaching, and bringing the Word of God to the faithful through the liturgies.

The Archdiocese invests in a thorough theological education and the highest level formation suited to the calling of each individual. In this way, our seminarians and priests will be equipped to effectively convey the Truth and teachings of the Church to anyone. By supporting seminarians and priests, we are investing in the future of the Church.

The assurance of a dignified and adequate quality of life for retired priests is a fundamental responsibility of the Archdiocese. This responsibility extends to priests who are unable to continue in ministry because of medical reasons. The Archdiocese currently supports four retired priests and expects the number to double in the next five years. Building a healthy retirement fund will help with housing, accommodation support, medical care, and other services that are available to them for the remainder of their lives.

It may be the only meal they have, but they are assured at least one per day at Ministry to the Homeless soup kitchen. The homeless meal program is a shining light in the Archdiocese, centrally located, and ministers to hundreds of homeless and hungry each week. While most of the meals are prepared elsewhere and donated, the ministry uses its financial resources to maintain its facilities to meet health and safety standards, provide personal care items and a shower facility. A thrift store receives donated clothing and other items for the poor. Through the ‘Pay it Forward’ program, donors can designate their cash contributions in the form of gift vouchers for those needing items at the thrift store. Even the smallest generosity can be transforming.

Guided by the Holy Spirit and in obedience to the Magisterium of the Church, our Archdiocese strives to inform, teach and inspire all people regarding matters of our faith and the GOOD NEWS of Christ in our lives. Recognizing that Catholics today navigate a sea of news and information generated by a vast number of secular media outlets that can be confusing and diminishing, the Archdiocese presents the teachings of the Catholic Church and the work of the Church in Guam and Marianas in a trustworthy manner and multiple forms: text, audio, video, traditional and social media. We are blessed to have our toolbox of evangelization and communication an overall archdiocesan website, an around-the-clock radio station (KOLG 90.9 FM), social media platforms, and mutually respectful and thriving relationships with local, national, and international media organizations.

Adults

The Catholic schools and parish faith formation programs of the Archdiocese of Agaña are a vital part of the church’s mission to teach as Jesus did. Through the Office of Catholic Education, a unified, but diverse, high-quality family of Catholic schools and parish faith formation programs have access to religious, local and federal funded grants and materials, scholarships, a centralized source for curriculum and formation support, financial and administrative guidance, and other programs.

In 2002 in response to the many sexual allegations and reports of clergy sexual abuse of children in the Catholic Church, the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) signed the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, a guide to promote healing and reconciliation with victims/survivors of sexual abuse of minors, to guarantee an effective response to allegations of sexual abuse of minors, and to ensure the accountability of procedures in parishes, schools, and other ministries where minors participate or are present. The Safe Environment Program embodies these principles and through its services, ensures that all clergy, employees, and volunteers working with children undergo annual training and background check clearances, and promotes the highest standards of safety and transparency.
