Catholics pay respects on All Souls Day
Thousands of the island's Catholic faithful visited cemeteries around the island today in honor of their loved ones who have passed on. All Souls Day masses were held throughout the day including the Guam Memorial Park in Leyang, Barrigada, where more than 3,000 people attended this morning's mass.
Guam Memorial Park Senior Funeral Director Len Mayer says today's event took plenty of planning and collaboration. "We charter busses - about 8 busses, 15 security guards, 3,000 mass booklets and candles that we pass out to everyone that comes to the All Souls Day Mass, advertising in the newspaper."
