The Catholic Church in Guam is being accused of rewarding a priest who shielded its Archbishop from abuse allegations.

The Concerned Catholics of Guam has written a letter to the church questioning the decision to send Father Adrian Cristobal to study in Canada.

Its President David Sablan told Jo O'Brien Father Cristobal is also a member of an alternative movement within the Church that has caused division and abused its resources.
