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 and teach youth in grades 1-6 during the day about various themes of our Faith. This daytime program consists of teaching, games, Holy Mass, and skits and runs from 9 AM to 2:30 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.
