What is Totus Tuus?
Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in the understanding of; and strengthen their faith in; Jesus Christ. It is only by establishing a real and personal relationship with Him that we can be led to the love of the Father in the Spirit and so be made sharers in the life of the Holy Trinity. "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me" (John 4:16).
Totus Tuus seeks to foster openness to vocations in the young people we serve as well as among the teachers. This is accomplished by placing special emphasis on the importance and necessity of prayer, Eucharistic devotion, and Marian devotion, in addition to catechetical instruction and formation in the Catholic faith.
How Does Totus Tuus Work?
Totus Tuus is a weeklong program that will be held at St. Gabriel this summer where college students trained in this year's curriculum spend the week teaching our children and teens using the Catholic Catechism, stories, games, skits, and FUN! The college students learn a lot as well. Not only must they know their topics, they learn leadership skills, organization, creativity, how to pray the Divine Office, and much more about their faith than they expected!
