Mariana Islands

Stories of Celebrations

The Mariana Islands are an archipelago that forms the shape of a crescent in the North Pacific Ocean, with four islands currently inhabited including Guam and Saipan.

The 200th anniversary of Bahá’u’lláh's birth brought together communities in a spirit of joy and fellowship for celebrations in several localities throughout the islands as well as at a formal reception held in Guam.

Many people attended the celebration held at the Guam National Museum, including a representative from the Governor's Office and a number of other officials and civil society leaders. The programme included prayers, a cultural chant inspired by a writing of Bahá’u’lláh, an inspiring talk from a young person involved with the community-building activities initiated by the Bahá’í community in Guam, and a screening of the film Light to the World.
