Totus Tuus

St. Mary's Summer Religious Ed program is called Totus Tuus.  Totus Tuus is a summer week-long youth program (Grades 1 through 12) dedicated to sharing the Gospel through catechesis, Christian witness, Eucharistic worship, and Marian devotion. The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in their Catholic faith, to grow in their love for Jesus Christ and to have fun in the process.  

The mission of Totus Tuus is 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 calls upon college students and seminarians from the Catholic Diocese of Joliet and across the United States to carry this mission to every young person they encounter. Totus Tuus teachers are hired for their energy, enthusiasm, love for the faith, commitment to spiritual growth, ability to work with a team, and desire to work with youth.

Teachers are trained, grouped into teams of four, and sent out to a different parish every week for six weeks, where they conduct a week-long "parish mission,” teaching and inspiring the parish’s youth.

Our program is usually held mid July. Please check this webpage for details about Totus Tuus 2022.
