St. John’s uses Totus Tuus for our Summer Faith Program. Totus Tuus – (Latin for “Totally Yours”) is a Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in the understanding of, and strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ.
Teachers for the Totus Tuus Program
College age students, two men and two women assigned by the Archdiocese. (Generally one of the men is a seminarian) Volunteers are also essential to the success of the week, please see the registration form for opportunities to help!

9 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
Our time is spent on catechetical instruction, songs, games, daily Mass, the opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, lunch, recess and more! The week ends with a large water fight with the children or a human (team member) ice cream sundae in celebration for the week. The focus is on imparting an understanding and love of the Eucharist, devotion to Mary, catechetical instruction, vocational discernment, and providing an enjoyable experience.
