Totus Tuus is named after St. Pope John Paul’s papal motto, “Totally Yours” referring to Mother Mary. It signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary. The theme for this year is the Luminous Mysteries – Prayer and the Our Father. This program is a Catholic youth program that is dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The trained team of young adults puts prayer and catechesis into active learning along with class time, games, songs, skits, and recess.
Family participation is vital to keep our youth active in their faith through adulthood. There will be several opportunities for families to be involved in this ministry including providing a meal to the team, volunteering in the classrooms, and volunteering behind the scenes. Families will be invited to attend dinner on Wednesday, July 26, to find out what the students are learning.
