Fr. Edivaldo da Silva and Father Adrian Cristobal spoke before island Rotarians this afternoon about the history of the Redemptoris Mater Seminary in Yona. The property has been at the center of controversy for several months as many have questioned whether the property still belongs to the Archdiocese of Agana. Former Sen. Bob Klitzkie discovered an error on the certificate title for the seminary property.
The Department of Land Management worked with the Archdiocese to correct the error. Sen. Klitzkie however believes the matter should have been resolved through the judicial process rather than administratively. Attorney Jackie Terlaje also appeared before Rotarians saying they want to dispel the lies. She says they can reassure the public the seminary property is owned by the Archdiocese, and they have the legal documents proving it.
Update: KUAM has corrected the error in their news report. KUAM previously wrote that Jackie Terlaje stated that she does not officially represent the Archdiocese. Jackie never made that statement, and KUAM has corrected the error.
