What is Totus Tuus?
Totuts Tuus, a summer catechetical program, is a week long parish mission for Catholic youth in grades one through twelve. It is dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship but also includes snacks, lunch, and games.
Totus Tuus, a Latin phrase meaning "totally yours," was the motto of St. John Paul II. Taken from St. Louis de Montfort's work, True Devotion to Mary, it signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary. It also expresses our effort to give all that we have to every young person we encounter.
Totus Tuus seeks to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by challenging them to give themselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary, and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of Her.
