2020 Totus Tuus
The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and 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.
TOTUS TUUS 2021 Dates UPDATED:
Due to Covid-19, Totus Tuus has made the difficult decision to cancel for the summer of 2020. As much as we hated to make this decision, we feel that it is the most prudent one as we keep in mind the health, well-being and safety of all the children, their families, our missionaries, parish priests and parish staff/volunteers. Due to this cancelation, parishes scheduled for 2020 will be given first priority for 2021.

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.
