Totus Tuus (Totally Yours) is a fun and energetic parish based summer catechetical program for grade school, junior high, and high school youth. Led by the Diocese, Totus Tuus gathers college students and seminarians into teams of four and sends them out to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in various parishes throughout the diocese. St. Anthony hosts a Totus Tuus team as they serve St. Anthony & Sacred Heart students for a week in June or July at our Grade School. Totus Tuus will be held in 2016 from June 26 - July 1. The Totus Tuus team puts on a program Sunday-Thursday from 7:30 PM - 9:30 PM for junior high and high school young adults. The grade school program for students entering grades 1-6 runs from Monday - Friday from 9:00 AM - 2:30 PM. The topic of discussion rotates each year between studying the Creed, Sacraments, Ten Commandments, Virtues and Beatitudes, Prayer, and the Mystery of Salvation. They also focus on a Mystery of the Rosary each year.
This is a team of Pastoral Council members and others that discuss bible study and classes on a variety of topics to be offered throughout the year. Join our planning team to explore new topics of interest, promote the programs, recruit and train facilitators, and help the facilitators and groups throughout their sessions.
Our 8th grade students participate in a half-day retreat, along with their parents, for Sacramental preparation. Students and parents have the opportunity to listen to a speaker, participate in small group discussions and develop deeper connections with each other. The purpose of the retreats is to come together as one group to learn and engage with each other with God as the focus.
