*Unfortunately, Totus Tuus has been CANCELED for 2020 due to the COVID-19 virus. The national organization and hosting Diocese tried everything they could to make this year work, but were unable to find a solution that kept everyone safe. Stay tuned for announcements about any additional (late) summer programming at St. Mary’s!
Have a blast learning about Jesus and making friends at a week long Catholic summer camp for kids and teens (grades 1-12)!
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.
