A dozen nuns walk onto a stage … and rock!

Siervas evangelizes with original music.

Following on the resounding success of their first YouTube video – featuring the sisters rocking on a helipad – Siervas released their new single, “Hoy Despierto” (I awake today). The song is their second single from the album of the same name, available on iTunes.

Again these rock-and-roll sisters have won the hearts of the public with their talent and the testimony of their radiant and joyful faith. “Our faith speaks for us. This is what we hope to transmit to Pope Francis and to all the young people of the world,” say the sisters.

The group Siervas is now made up of 12 sisters from Argentina, China, the Philippines, Chile, Venezuela, Ecuador, Peru, and Japan. They came to the community responding to God’s call to serve their brothers and sister, especially those who suffer the most, those who are most fragile, the sick, the poor, and the needy.

Their music does not come between them and their service. Sister Monica told Catholic News Service:

Monday and Friday afternoons are for group rehearsals and most of the nuns practice every day as well. But we also visit three different jails one morning a week, work in schools, with the homeless and people with physical handicaps, as well as with a children’s home for young people who have parents in prison or who can’t look after them.
