Totus Tuus is a Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in the understanding of, and strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ. It is only by establishing a real and personal relationship with Him that we can be led to the love of the Father in the Spirit and so be made sharers in the life of the Holy Trinity. "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me" (John 4:16). Totus Tuus strives to bring our faith to life by creating a balance between knowledge of the meaning of the Sacraments and an authentic Sacramental life.
Totus Tuus will be at St. Francis this summer during the week of June 18-23, 2017. All students entering grades 1-12 in the upcoming school year are welcome to attend. Grades 1-6 will meet from 8:30am-3pm Monday through Friday and grades 7-12 will meet from 7-9:45pm Sunday through Thursday. Each child is asked to bring a snack to share. Please fill out the Registration and Waiver Form and return it to the parish office or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost for the week is $20 per child or $40 per family (please make checks payable to St. Francis of Assisi).
If you are interested in helping with hospitality (snacks, meals, or lodging) for our Totus Tuus Team or if you have questions, please email Danielle at email@example.com or call 405-528-0485 xt25.

Along with Chosen, we offer an exciting program for our high school youth called YDisciple. This program creates intentional discipleship groups for our youth led by adult mentors. Practical training, video studies, engaging discussion guides, and parent resources combine to create an ideal environment for teens to take ownership of their faith. YDisciple meets the needs of teenagers through a model that is relational, relevant, and parent-driven.
