Totus Tuus is visiting St. James the week of July 16!
Registration is required; see below.
Totus Tuus is returning for its 8th summer at St. James.
It is a diocesan program that works with a team of college students who are sent to parishes as missionaries to spread the Good News to the parish children and teens for the week.
TOTUS TUUS (Totally Yours) is a fun and energetic parish based summer catechetical program, for both grade school age children and junior and senior high school youth. We gather together college students and seminarians onto teams of four in order to train them and send them out on the road to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ in various parishes throughout the Diocese of Charlotte. Their youthfulness, energy, and ability to witness to the Faith make our teachers particularly effective with children and young people.
