totus tuus 2023
This summer, we are excited to announce that Totus Tuus is coming to our family of parishes on June 11th through June 16th! Totus Tuus (latin for Totally Yours) is a fun and energetic parish based summer catechetical program for grade school, junior high, and high school students. A team of Missionaries composed of college students and seminarians will visit our parish and lead Totus Tuus with the intention of building relationship between our youth and Christ. Their energy, enthusiasm, and deep Love of our Lord make Totus Tuus a wonderful week for the youth of our Parish. For over 30 years, Totus Tuus has been held throughout the United States at Catholic Churches every summer, and it is a wonderful way to give our children the opportunity to encounter the incredible Love of our Lord Jesus Christ!
Cost is $20 per child or teen with a cap of $40 per family per session (with all additional children are free to register). To register, grab a registration form from the St. Francis Borgia Commons area or download and print the form found at the bottom of this page.

"Let the Children come to me... ...for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these" Matthew 19:14
The grade school program runs Monday, June 12th to Friday, June 16th, 2023 9:00AM-2:30PM.
Our students will sing songs, play games, and have loads of fun! They will learn about the Catholic Faith, receive our Lord in the Holy Mass, and encounter the Love of Jesus for which they are made. The week ends with a huge water fight and opportunity to "Sundae" one or more of their Totus Tuus Missionaries with all the toppings of a classic ice cream sundae!
"It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you..." John 15:16
The high school program runs Sunday, June 11th to Thursday, June 15th, 2023 6:30PM to 8:45PM.
Totus Tuus gives our junior high and high school youth an opportunity to Encounter the Lord with other young people and young adult leaders! It shows the youth of our Parish that the Catholic Faith isn't just something old that can't be understood, but rather that it is full of life and joy!
Totus Tuus is a valuable experience for any junior high or high school student wrestling with the deeper questions of our faith, like "who am I," "who is God," "what is my purpose," and "why does a Good God allow bad things to happen?" Throughout the week, our teens are lead deep into the mysteries of what we believe.
Totus Tuus is also excellent for young people who are ready to take the next step in their faith life or want to draw near to Our Lord but don't know how. The first step of our faith journey is relationship with God, receiving the Love of the Father through the Son in prayer. From this relationship and love extends our Identity as a beloved son or daughter of the King, and out of this Identity we go into the world to fulfill our Mission and preach the Gospel!
Totus Tuus fosters this discovery of relationship with the Lord and seeks to answer these hard questions for souls that are hungry for God. We will have a night of Adoration and Confession, discussion sessions that bring the Light of Christ to relevant areas in students' lives, and a memorable night of fellowship with the Missionaries (outdoors around a campfire if weather permits).
