Totus Tuus

General information:

Totus Tuus, which is Latin for "Totally Yours" (Pope St. John Paul II's motto), is a week-long summer catechetical program for youth. A team of four young adults travel around the Diocese a teach youth in grades 1-6 during the day about various themes of our Faith. This year, they will be focusing on Salvation History and the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. This daytime program consists of teaching, games, Holy Mass, and skits and runs from 9:30 AM to 2 PM. In the evening, a program for youth in grades 7-12 are invited to join the team for faith discussions, prayer time (including adoration), games, and the opportunity to witness college students living a fully Catholic life.

How do I schedule a Totus Tuus retreat at my parish?
