Belen is the Chamorro word for Nativity Scene.  It actually means "Bethlehem," and is borrowed from the Spanish.

Father Patrick Castro and his many helpers put together the belen in the friary this year.

The men began by putting the frame of the shelter together.

Father Patrick and his helpers padded the belen with lumut (Guam jungle moss).

The End Result!
The reward of hard work.
