Totus Tuus is a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours,” the papal motto of Blessed Pope John Paul II. It signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through Mary. Over the summer, team members are called to give of themselves to help students grow in their faith and to develop a stronger relationship with Christ.
All team members attend two weeks of training at the beginning of the summer, so no experience is needed. We are looking for creative, reliable college students who are on fire for their faith and want to share it with the youth of our diocese through the sacraments, games, songs, skits, and classroom instruction. Teams are made up of 4 college-age individuals—2 men and 2 women—who will travel to parishes throughout the diocese, sharing the gospel and setting the youth on fire for Christ.
Totus Tuus stands alone in many regards within the Church as a premier leadership program for college students. It forms team members in the leadership skills necessary to embark on successful careers and vocations following their college years.
