Grades 1-12

June 11-16th at St. Mary’s

Totus Tuus is Latin for “totally yours,” a motto given to us by Blessed Pope John Paul II in describing his dedication to Jesus through Mary.  For one week this summer, we will provide Catholic youth entering grades 1-12 a prayer-filled environment that will help them come closer to Christ through His Mother, Mary.  Totus Tuus demonstrates that one can be a faithful, practicing Catholic and still have fun!  The Totus Tuus teams are made up of four college-age men and women who share their enthusiasm and love for the faith with the youth of our diocese.  They engage students in classes, songs, skits, and games, all while deepening their understanding of the faith and showing them how to live it out day to day.  $25 per child, $50 family maximum, this includes all lunches.  Registration forms can be found at the doors of the church.
