TOTUS TUUS (Latin for Totally Yours and named after St. John Paul II’s papal motto) is a fun and energetic parish based summer catechetical program for grade school age children and middle and high school youth.
How it works
TOTUS TUUS gathers together college students and seminarians from across the United States onto teaching teams of four for training and then sends them out to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in participating parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. The teachers’ youthfulness, energy, and ability to witness to the Faith make them particularly effective with children and young adults.
Over the past couple of decades, this summer program has been shared throughout dozens of dioceses. A team of four including seminarians and college students have been invited to put on the program for our youth.
