Totus Tuus this Summer

Totus Tuus, Latin for “Totally Yours,” is a week-long summer catechetical youth program that combines Catholic religious instruction and having fun! A team of college-age students and seminarians come to the parish to lead. The youthfulness and energy of the teachers is an inspiring way to share the faith and their enthusiasm is contagious, so come out and join us.

The day includes catechetical instruction on our theme – the Virtues and Beatitudes and Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary, songs, and skits that are silly but teach the faith encounters with the sacraments, particularly Confession and Eucharist, and time for games and recess. For teens, those entering 7 - 12 grades, a teen program of Totus Tuus covers more in-depth discussions on our theme and is held in the evening.
