2016 Guam Society of America Santa Marian Kamalen/Our Lady of Camarin Novena and Mass Schedule is provided below. For questions, please contact Rosanne Meno at (571) 329-8993 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each year we rotate the nightly novena amongst Guam Society members who have volunteered to host a novena. This gives our members an opportunity to attend the novenas that are close to where they live. In the past four years, attendance has steadily increased at the nightly novenas. If you plan to attend, please contact the host for the novena at the numbers provided; you can also inquire with the hosts if you would like to bring a dish for the usual potluck gatherings that are held after the novena.
Let’s continue to make this annual devotion for our island patroness, a devotion and tradition filled with fellowship and prayer; if you are not able to make each novena, we definitely understand and simply ask for your support in attending as many of the novenas that you can attend. Thank you to the hosting families for opening your home to our island patroness.
