"Siervas" took the Internet by storm late last year.

They’re not the twelve apostles, but they are 11 Catholic nuns who are spreading the word of Jesus — through music.

Not church hymns, mind you, but full-on Christian worship/pop music with a definite mission.

They call themselves Siervas (the servants), for they serve the Lord through their mission on the outskirts of Lima, Peru, where their convent is located. They sing in Spanish, but their message is universal. They write their own songs, with titles such as “Heroes,” “Come and You Will See” and “Trust in God,” with messages that run the gamut from trusting in God to get you through the darkest times to how to create awareness about the crises children around the world are facing in today’s world.

“We do sing at mass, but these songs are not for mass,” says vocalist/percussionist and the group’s English-speaking “organizer and promoter” Sister Monica. “They are for your car, your party, your free time. There are many Catholic and Christian musicians making worship songs and that is what we are doing.
