WHAT IS TOTUS TUUS?
Totus Tuus is a fun and energetic Catholic youth program taught by seminarians and college students throughout the Diocese of Joliet. From catechetical teaching sessions, Sacraments, and Mass to songs, games and skits - your child is sure to have fun while learning more about their Faith!
Totus Tuus seeks to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an 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, a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours,” was the motto of St. John Paul II. Taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s True Devotion to Mary, it signifies 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.
DIOCESE OF JOLIET
The Diocese of Joliet has executed the Totus Tuus Program each summer since 2009, recruiting parishes throughout the diocese to host. You may register your children at any or multiple parishes if you like, according to the location and date that work best for your family. After registering with the diocese, the parish you choose will get notification and that coordinator will then be able to connect with you to inform you of the details that may be unique to that parish’s program. Your child is encouraged to evangelize by inviting a buddy to attend! Let’s grow the Kingdom of God together!
