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, 2019.

The grade school program for incoming 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.

The Junior/Senior high school youth mission for incoming 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.

Cost for parishioners of Ss. Joseph, Bavo, and Monica:  $20 per child or $50 maximum per family.

Cost for non parishioners:  $50 per child and $100 maximum per family.

If capacity becomes an issue, parishioners have priority and a wait list can be established.

You can find registration forms here. You can drop your registration forms and payment in the collection basket on Sunday, bring to any parish office, or turn into any of the offices of Mishawaka Catholic School.
