Totus Tuus is a summer-time Catechetical youth program filled with faith and fun for Catholic youth in grades 1st-12th dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. Parent and adult volunteers are needed to assist with meals, and coordinate the potluck dinner. We also need volunteers to provide housing for these young men and women for the 6 days they are here.
Held in early June for students entering grades 1st through 12th, our week-long program assists parents and parishes in the evangelizing and catechizing of their youth by supplementing the work they are already doing. The methodology, structure, content, and enthusiasm of Totus Tuus is concerned not only with teaching the faith, but also igniting the hearts of the team members and young people. The result has been the formation of young adults who continue to dedicate themselves to the Church’s mission of evangelization.
Totus Tuus, a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours,” was the motto of Blessed John Paul II. It signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ. It also expresses our effort to give our all to every young person we encounter. Through the teams’ example of joy and service, the youth see that these men and women are ON FIRE with the Catholic faith and long for the same thing in their lives.
