TOTUS TUUS (Latin for Totally Yours) is a fun and energetic parish-based summer catechetical program for both grade school age children and middle and high school youth. TOTUS TUUS gathers together college students and seminarians from across the United States onto teaching teams of four in order to train them and send them out on the road to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in various participating parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. The teachers’ youthfulness, energy, and ability to witness to the Faith make them particularly effective with children and young adults.

Steubenville Youth Conference | July 20 - 22
Grades 9 - 12 | Weekend Overnight | Steubenville, OH

“In this way, the love of God was revealed to us: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might have life through him.” 1 John 4:9

We live in a world where there are voices shouting at us from all sides, trying to tell us who we are and who we aren’t, who we should be and who we shouldn’t be. If we pay too much attention to these voices, it won’t be long before we forget our true identity altogether.

But amidst all the noise is our loving Father, who wants to make Himself known to us and speak truth about who we are. God’s love is deeper and His plan for our lives is greater than anything the world has to offer – will we allow Him to reveal it to us?

This summer, over 50,000 Catholic teens across North America will participate in 25 Steubenville Youth Conferences, and we want you to be one of them! Come experience the love of God in a new and more profound way. He has so much in store for you.

Keep an eye out for more information coming soon!


Youth Group Dinners

We need help providing for a crucial part of our Youth Ministry…FOOD! When the HS and 7/8 groups get together, it's a hungry bunch and pizza is needed!! On nights when only the HS group meets, we still need dinner provided for roughly 40 teens! To save the Youth Ministry budget for programming needs, we are looking for donations as well as help ordering/delivering and serving/clean up. 

You can sign up to help with a youth group dinner at:

Core Team

Join the Core Team! We are looking for core team mentors to walk with the youth of our Parish, as they explore their faith and grow in discipleship. If you are in love with Christ and His Church, and feel called to serve our youth, I ask you to prayerfully consider joining one of our youth group core teams. Please contact Nancy Shula If you or someone you know would be a good fit for this ministry!

Youth Involvement for 5:30 pm Mass needed

Get involved with Liturgical Ministries as an Euchaistic Minister, Lector, Usher, Mass Coordinator or Cantor! If  you're an 8th grader or current hgh school student and would like to be a part of the youth-led 5:30 pm Mass then choose a ministry and contact one of our teen Mass Coordinators to receive more information including training opportunities and answers to any of your questions.
