TOTUS TUUS is coming to SSPP July 30th-August 4th!
What is Totus Tuus? The Totus Tuus parish summer catechetical program is a week-long “parish mission” for Catholic youth in the 1st through 12th grades. It is dedicated to the proclamation of the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, apologetics, Christian witness, the sacraments, Marian devotion, and Eucharistic adoration.
Totus Tuus accomplishes this by having college students, young adults, and seminarians engage the youth of the parish with skits, songs, games and inspiring, interactive teaching.
Totally Yours Totus Tuus, a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours,” was the motto of Saint John Paul II. Taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s work, True Devotion to Mary, it signifes our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through the hands of our Blessed Mother Mary. It also expresses our effort to give all that we have to every young person we encounter.
Curriculum The Totus Tuus program has divided the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church into a six year cycle. Additionally, each summer is dedicated to one of the mysteries of the Rosary. In 2023, Totus Tuus will cover The Mystery of Salvation & The Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.
