TOTUS TUUS Totus Tuus is a program for youth dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people (grades 1st – 12th) grow in their understanding of the faith and love for Jesus and His Church. Totus Tuus is led by a 4 person team of college students, two men and two women. If possible, we try to put one seminarian on each team. Each team goes through an intensive two-week training. They are present at all weekend Masses prior to the week to promote attendance.
The Totus Tuus is one week ( Monday-Friday) and availability to participate in the Totus Tuus are from June 8-August 2, 2019. See the link for the location and schedules: vocations.stcdio.org/totus-tuus/parish/
There are five essential elements to the Totus Tuus program:
Exploring faith through the Gospels Why we believe what we believe Being a living Christian witness Celebrating the Sacraments — especially Mass and Reconciliation Mission of the Church
