What is Totus Tuus?
Totus Tuus is a summer program dedicated to bringing kids closer to Christ through the sacraments, prayer and fun.
Grades 1-6 Program
The Totus Tuus Grades 1-6 Program is designed for children entering first through sixth grades in the upcoming school year. The Grades 1-6 Program begins on Monday and concludes on Friday.
The sacred scriptures and the Catechism of the Catholic Church provide the foundation of the catechetical instruction of the Totus Tuus summer program. The topic for 2019 is “The Sacraments”. In addition, 2019 is dedicated to The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.
Middle School/High School Program
Totus Tuus offers an evening program for middle school and high school youth. Middle school youth are those entering grades 7 and 8, and high school youth are those entering grades 9-12 for the upcoming school year. These grade levels meet Sunday through Thursday evenings.
The middle school students will join the high school students for the evening program; however, when group attendance allows, their classes will remain separate to maintain an atmosphere and discussion level that is appropriate for each age group.
