Totus Tuus
Totus Tuus is a week-long time to go deeper in your Catholic faith, led by four college students who come from all over the diocese. Starting on Sunday night through Thursday night, the college students lead the teens through evenings of craziness, talks, discussion and prayer.

The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people to 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.

It is through the teams’ example of authentic Christian living, centered on prayer and the sacraments, that they are able to be witnesses. “Modern man listens more willingly to witnesses than to teachers, and if he does listen to teachers, it is because they are witnesses” (Evangelii Nuntiandi, 41). The youth see that these teachers who are joyful and on fire with the Catholic faith and long for the same thing in their lives.

Additionally, the daily schedule of Totus Tuus revolves around the Mass, the Sacraments, and prayer.

The Five Pillars of Totus Tuus
1. The Eucharist
2. Marian Devotion
3. Catechetical Instruction
4. Vocational Discernment
5. Fun

The Eucharist has pride of place in the Totus Tuus schedule, for both team members and participants. Prayer—the Liturgy of the Hours, the Rosary, the Angelus, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament—provide the structure. Totus Tuus leaders will lead the young people to Jesus for a week; however, Mary will lead them to Jesus for a lifetime. Therefore, Totus Tuus promotes Marian devotion. Meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, we come to see how Mary always leads us to her Son. Praying with her and to her, we hear her say to us, “Do whatever He tells you” (John 2:5).
