TOTUS TUUS is a Catholic summer program dedicated to sharing the Gospel in a way that is fun and effective! As indicated by its name which means “totally yours” in Latin, the goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people develop their relationship with Jesus Christ and give themselves entirely to Jesus through the hands of his Mother.
In past years when St. Mary’s has hosted Totus Tuus, we’ve had an incredible time together. Here’s how it works: teams of two college-age men and two college-age women go to a national training put on by the national Totus Tuus organization. Then they head out to put on week-long camps at various parishes.
These young people are on fire for their faith and are super outgoing. The biggest impact of the week isn’t catechesis, although the team does a great job with that. The biggest impact is the authentic, lived-out Catholic witness of the team.
This year’s theme is The Sacraments and The Sorrowful Mysteries.
