Totus Tuus is a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours.” It was the motto of St. John Paul II and taken from Louis De Montfort’s True Devotion to Mary and it signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus through Mary. The mission of the Totus Tuus Summer Program is to inspire in the next generation a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by constantly challenging them to give themselves to Christ through Mary’s example.
The Totus Tuus Missionary Team will consist of four college aged catechist/ witnesses. There will be two young women, and two young men who have committed their summer to deepening of their own faith through prayer, worship, and spreading the word of God through their witness.
The Totus Tuus Program is set up to reach young people from first grade through high school in two separate programs.
The middle school/high school program will run in the evening from Sunday July 18th through Thursday, July 22nd. They will be discovering the depths of the Ten Commandments, the Glorious Mysteries, apologetics, and chastity. Thursday evening will be set aside for an evening social.
The Elementary Program for grades 1-6 runs Monday through Friday July 19-23 during the day. Students will also be exploring the Ten Commandments and the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary. There will be Mass each day, time for Confession, Adoration, and fellowship. Participants will be asked to bring a lunch every day.
While we are continuing to plan and prepare for our exciting summer program, please pray for the missionaries who will be coming to our parish and diocese. Pray that their hearts will be on fire with the Holy Spirit, and that God’s wonderful message will manifest itself in them as they witness to the awesomeness of our Creator!
