TOTUS TUUS SUMMER PROGRAM

 

GRADES 1—12

Dates:  July 19-23

Times:  9:00am-2:30pm (Grades 1-6), 7:00pm-9:00pm (Grades 7-12)

What is Totus Tuus?  (Latin for Totally Yours) It is a fun and energetic parish-based summer catechetical program, for grade school-age children in grades 1—12.   The program is led by a team of four fun, energetic, and faithful college-aged men and women that lead games, songs, prayers, and lessons. The week ends with a huge water fight! The program combines daily Mass, songs, games, Eucharistic Adoration and tons of fun!

Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship.  Our week-long Parish Summer Catechetical Program and Summer Camps assist parents and parishes in the evangelizing and catechizing of their youth by supplementing the work they are already doing.
