Guest Performers for Mananitas!

For many years, the Sister Servants have celebrated the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe with great festivities in honor of our Mamacita, Mary. It is a special celebration which we gratefully offer to our community of local volunteers. The day always includes a conference, Holy Mass, and the singing of Mananitas.

Las Mananitas are Spanish songs traditionally sung to honor a loved one on their birthday or feast day, and on December 12th we sing them to Our Lady herself. Years ago, we began singing the Mananitas with the help of a Mariachi band, but 2021 marks the tenth anniversary of the Sisters leading all the singing.

We wrote this song to tell the story of the apparition of Our Lady to Saint Juan Diego at Guadalupe, but it has been several years since we’ve had a full production! The children acting out the song are family of Sister Marie Therese, and we hope you enjoy this piece of our celebration as much as we did.

You can purchase a CD, DVD, or MP3 recording of our 2011 Mananitas through our bookstore, here.
