Totus Tuus is coming to
Queen of Peace Parish June 21st – 26th =, 2020
What is Totus Tuus?
TOTUS TUUS (Totally Yours) is a dynamic, fun parish catechetical camp for 1st – 12th-grade children & teens. Phoenix Diocese college students and seminarians commit to an intensive 2-week training, they are sent in teams of four to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ to parishes. The witness of the teachers – their youthfulness, prayerfulness, energy, and fun – makes them especially effective in ministering to children and teens.
The grade school program is designed for children going into 1st through 6th grades. It runs Monday – Friday 8:30 am – 2:30 pm (children bring their lunch), and includes Mass, games, opportunities for confession, and excellent catechesis.
The junior high youth and high school teens meet Sunday -Thursday 7:00 – 9:00 pm the evenings for catechetical instruction, testimony, small group discussions, quiet meditation, prayer, and fellowship.
So is Totus Tuus basically VBS?
VBS has many structural similarities, as both offer catechesis to children (1st -6th grade) during a week-long program. However, Totus Tuus is run by missionaries from our diocese, rather than parish volunteers.
In addition to the day program, Totus Tuus offers an evening program for 7th- 12th graders (somewhat similar to a youth ministry night). The sacraments are a huge part of Totus Tuus: daily Mass and confession is part of the day children grades 1st-6th program, and Adoration and confession are offered for the evening teen program.
