Totus Tuus (tōtus tŭus),Totally Yours, is a fun and energetic parish-based summer mission for
both grade school age children, and Junior/Senior high school youth. College students and
seminarians are formed into teams of four, trained and sent out on the road to spread the Good
News of Jesus Christ. Their youthfulness, energy, and ability to witness to the faith, make our
teachers particularly effective with children and young people.
St. Joseph, St. Bavo and St. Monica Parishes have invited Tutus Tuus to run our Summer Youth
Mission from July 15th – 19th. The Junior/Senior high school youth mission for grades
7-12 will be located at the St. Monica Campus from 7:30pm – 9:30pm, Sunday
thru Thursday. Our goal is to put the youth in contact with the Lord, so that they can develop a
deep personal relationship with Him. To this end, we have a night of Adoration, the opportunity for
the Sacrament of Reconciliation, catechetical instruction on topics important to young people and
a night of fellowship with the team members.
The grade school program for grades 1-6 will be located at the St. Joseph
Campus from 9:00am-2:30pm, Monday thru Friday. Our time is spent on catechetical
instruction, songs, games, daily Mass, the opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, lunch,
recess and more. The focus is on imparting an understanding and love of the Eucharist, devotion
to Mary, catechetical instruction, vocational discernment and providing an enjoyable experience.
Because Totus Tuus works with 1st thru 12th graders only, our former Vacation Bible school team
will run the Preschool and Kindergartners program at the St. Bavo Campus from 9:00am-11:30am,
Monday thru Friday. (3 year old – kindergarteners, must be potty trained)
Cost is $10.00 per child with a $30.00 family max. Please make checks out to St. Joe Parish.
Students in grades 1-6 will need to bring a sack lunch everyday.
You can find registration forms here. You can drop your registration forms and payment in the collection basket on Sunday or drop off to any of the parish offices, Attention: Tammy Christianson.
