TOTUS TUUS parish summer catechetical program is a week-long "parish mission" for Catholic youth in the 1st through 12th grades.  Totus Tuus is dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness and Eucharistic worship.  

"Totus Tuus" is a Latin phrase meaning "totally yours", made popular as the Papal motto of Saint John Paul II, taken from St. Louis de Montfort's work: True Devotion to Mary, which 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 deep love for God, love for others and an openness to discovering their vocation - all by giving themselves to Jesus Christ through Mary.
