Totus Tuus is a summer youth mission dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people entering first through twelfth grade a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by constantly challenging them to give themselves entirely to Jesus through Mary and continually strengthen their prayer lives in imitation of Her.
Totus Tuus, a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours,” was the motto of Pope St. John Paul II. Taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s True Devotion to Mary, it signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through the hands of our Blessed Mother Mary. It also expresses our effort to give all that we have to every young person we encounter.
