Totus Tuus - July 15-19, 2019
Our parish is hosting a summer program called Totus Tuus. Totus Tuus is a fun and energetic parish based summer catechetical program for both grade school age children and middle and high school youth. Totus Tuus gathers together college students and seminarians from across the United States onto teaching teams of four in order to train them and send them out on the road to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ. The teachers’ youthfulness, energy, and ability to witness to the Faith make them particularly effective with children and young adults. Totus Tuus (a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours”) was the motto of Pope St. John Paul II. It signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through the hands of our Blessed Mother Mary. The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness. Seminarians and college students from the Archdiocese of Cincinnati carry this mission to every young person and participant of Totus Tuus. The youth see that these young adults are joyful and on fire with the Catholic faith, which encourages them to strive for the same thing in their lives.
Our annual Girls Getaway service retreat from girls in 5th -12 grades will be held at the Our Lady of the Apostle Family Center, 3884 N. 700 West, Greenfield on July 8-11, 2019.
