Fr Eric with Governor Eddie Calvo and First Lady Christine Calvo
For the entire month of March, which is Chamorro Month, Capuchin Father Eric Forbes held his Exhibit of pre-war religious life on Guam at Government House, the official residence of the Governor of Guam and his or her family.

At the invitation of First Lady Christine Calvo, Fr Eric assembled a collection of pre-war photographs and artifacts depicting the religious life of Guam's Catholics and Baptists in celebration of Chamorro Month, the month set aside to honor Guam's indigenous culture.

With the help of volunteers, displays were set up recreating scenes from Guam's pre-war past.  It was this faith in God that helped Chamorros endure the hardships of World War II.

A crowd of over 200 people attended the Opening of the Exhibit

Archbishop Apuron blessed the Opening ceremonies
