Totus Tuus

What is Totus Tuus?

Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship.

The methodology, structure, content, and enthusiasm of Totus Tuus is concerned not only with teaching the faith, but also igniting the hearts of the team members and young people.

The result has been the formation of young adults who continue to dedicate themselves to the Church’s mission of evangelization.

Mission

The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by constantly challenging them to give themselves entirely to Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of Her.

Motivation

Totus Tuus, a Latin phrase meaning "totally yours," was the motto of Pope John Paul II. Taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s True Devotion to Mary, it signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary. It also expresses our effort to give our all to every young person we encounter. Through the teams’ example of joy and service, the youth see that these men and women are ON FIRE with the Catholic faith and long for the same thing in their lives.

Method

Totus Tuus calls upon college students and seminarians from the Catholic Diocese of Superior and across the United States to carry this mission to every young person they encounter in the parishes. Students are hired for their energy, enthusiasm, love for the faith, commitment to spiritual growth, ability to work with a team, and desire to work with youth.

Parish catechists are grouped into teams of four, each consisting of two men and two women, and are invited to a different parish every week for seven or eight weeks, where they conduct a week-long "parish mission", teaching and inspiring the parish’s youth.
