What is Totus Tuus? Totus Tuus is Latin for “totally yours” and is a 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 their understanding of, and strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ. The program strives to bring our faith to life by creating a balance between knowledge of the meaning of the Sacraments and an authentic Sacramental life. When he became Pope in 1978, Blessed John Paul II chose Totus Tuus for his papal motto. Throughout his 26 years as the Holy Father, he called the Church, especially young people, to a new evangelization. Totus Tuus seeks to foster openness to vocations in the youth 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. Totus Tuus is sponsored by the Diocese of Burlington.
General Information: Each Totus Tuus team is comprised of four Catholic young adults. The week includes learning about our faith, fellowship, and lots of fun! The Totus Tuus program serves youth entering grades 1-8, as well as high school students entering grades 9-12 for the 2019-2020 academic year. Lunch and snacks will be provided for participants thanks to volunteers and the Bristol school lunch program. Friday afternoon there is a water activity therefore your children will come home wet. Please limit one water gun per child and ensure the water gun is empty upon arrival. We will also be providing before and after care for any child, just please make a note on your registration form or let Lisa know! Before care will take place from 8:00-9:00am and after care will take place from 3:00-4:30pm.
Volunteers Needed: The only way to make this week successful is with your help. There are a variety of "behind the scenes" roles including:
Hosting the Totus Tuus team in your home for the week
Providing dinner for the Totus Tuus team one night
Providing snacks for the youth in the program during the day
