SANTA RITA

Sånta Rita
Santa Rita is located on the southwestern side of Guam and is part of the Haya (Southern) District. This village does not have an original name because it was established in 1945 when residents were moved from the destroyed Sumay village. "Santa Rita" is the patron saint of abused wives. It is not clear how the name was decided upon, nor for what reason the name was chosen when the village was established.
