8 Reasons You Should RUN to Your Nearest Totus Tuus Program
- Encounter Jesus through Mary.
Have you ever wanted to completely transform your life for the better? Not sure where to start? Totus Tuus teaches you how to grow closer to Jesus through Mary. This will be something to write grandma about!
- Watch 6-year-olds dump chocolate syrup on your priest’s head.
Well, maybe. You will see ice cream toppings poured all over one of the Tutus Tuus missionaries’ heads, and your priest might jump in, too, if you ask him really nicely! Just don’t tell him the idea came from me! Shhh…
- Say night prayer all week.
No, I’m not talking about your average “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.” We’re talking about a priest prayin’, sister sayin’, monk makin’ prayer. You won’t fall asleep for this one, but you may experience some serious peace.
- Play the craziest round of Bunny Bunny ever!
Don’t know what I’m talking about? Well, I would tell you but I don’t want to spoil it for you. All I can say is: Be ready to get your Toki Toki on!
- Meet your future best friend.
Well I can’t make any promises, but I can tell you that you will meet some pretty amazing people at Totus Tuus. Oh, and the Totus Tuus missionaries are pretty cool, too.
- Go to a potluck.
That’s right! Do you like eating delicious mystery salads? Same! Totus Tuus puts on a potluck where you can go eat food and listen to little tots sing the banana song at the top of their lungs. It’s almost as good as a real live dinner theatre.
- Clean Your Soul.
Have a few sins weighing you down? While the car wash might not take these babies away, Reconciliation can! And guess what? You are in luck because you can go to Confession at Totus Tuus. You will be sparkling clean once you are done and will feel a lot better too.
- Make the Catholic faith your own.
If anyone has ever told you that the Catholic Faith is just for little old ladies, they are absolutely wrong. Catholicism is for you, too! Learn what it means to be Catholic this summer at Totus Tuus.
Totus Tuus is Latin for “Totally Yours.” It was the motto of Pope St. John Paul II, and he used it often to remind us that we can grow closer to Jesus through our mother Mary. The Totus Tuus program gives students (entering grades 1-12) the opportunity to encounter Jesus, to learn about Catholicism, and to make the Catholic Faith their own.
