SANTA RITA, Guam (Nov. 2, 2018) - All Souls Day Mass was held at Sumay Cemetery on U.S. Naval Base Guam (NBG) Nov. 2.

The annual Mass is held in coordination with NBG and the Santa Rita Mayor's office.

Dozens of former Sumay residents and their descendants attended the Mass in remembrance of those buried at the cemetery.

On Guam, All Soul's Day is a government of Guam holiday as many residents take part in Masses held at cemeteries throughout the island.

Lt. William Brunner, NBG chaplain, presided over the Mass.

Coastal Riverine Group 1 helped clean up the cemetery prior to the Mass and assisted during the event.
