May 24th is the day of the Blessed Virgin Mary and since Salesian Sisters call themselves Daughters of the Holy Mary, this is one of the biggest days of the year here. There are no classes, instead all of the students from the three schools (the secondary school, the primary school, and the professional school across the street) are expected to come and we march in a procession down the national highway for about a mile (with police out there controlling the passing traffic), all the while singing celebratory praise songs, and then march back. After the procession, mass is held for everyone and following mass, many different performances. My REDES girls performed “Hail Holy Queen” (“Sister Act” style), I will attach the video if possible.
