CHRISTMAS VILLAGE IS GOING UP!
The Friary Christmas Village has become a major Guam event during the holidays. The last time it was held, over 10,000 people came to the Friary to view it.
The huge collection of pieces that make up the Village is the property of the Quinata and Villagomez families, who have spent years building up the collection. They generously share their ornaments with the friars to hold this annual fundraising event.
It takes about two months to put it up, and the family members volunteer their many hours and physical efforts to do so. Since they come after working hours, they have dinner at the Friary. God bless them! It has become the Christmas event of the island in recent years.
