Religious Activities

Over the span of three centuries, Spanish culture became dominant on Guam. The Spanish ships stopped in Guam each year between Mexico and Manila. In 1668, the great galleons brought the Jesuits to Guam. In short order, the Roman Catholic Church became the focal point of activities as the missionaries converted islanders to Christianity while teaching them to clothe their bodies, cultivate crops and husband animals in addition to introducing new methods of cooking and building. Today, most of Guam's population attends and strictly observes the protocols of the Catholic Church. Every village has a patron saint whose feast day is celebrated with a mass followed by a great fiesta of food, song and dance. Additionally, family groups hold christening parties to mark the beginning of a baby's life in the church. Fandango parties are held the evening before a wedding, and anniversary novenas commemorate the death of a loved one. All of these celebrations include lengthy religious services sometimes lasting for days, but always ending with a fiesta filled with food, drink and good will. There are some 20 Protestant denominations represented on the island as well, which include independent and non-denominational groups. The local papers carry complete listings of all local churches.
