Where Do I Begin?

Parish Information & Registration

Totus Tuus spends one week at each parish we serve. A missionary team of four college students—two men and two women—arrives on Saturday evening to meet the Parish Coordinator and Pastor, and to get a tour of the facilities. They will go over any last-minute details and familiarize themselves with the area and resources at your parish. The missionary team will speak at Masses on Saturday evening and Sunday morning to introduce themselves to the parish and call for any last-minute registrations.

Camper registration is handled online (here) where we take Credit Card and Bank Drafts. For families that are cash/check only, please contact the Totus Tuus Coordinator for your parish paper registration form.

The daytime program for grade school youth entering grades 1 – 6 runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The evening program for middle school and high school youth entering grades 7 – 12 runs Sunday through Thursday from 7 p.m. tp 9:30 p.m.

In addition to making the church available throughout the week for 11:15 mass, each parish must also provide a large gathering space (like a school gym), at least three classrooms, a room for the team members, and an open space outdoors (like a field or parking lot).

Parishes are responsible for finding two host families—one for the men and one for the women—which will house the team members for the entire week they are at your parish. The host families are responsible for providing breakfast each morning and a place to stay Saturday through Thursday evenings.

The Parish Coordinator is responsible for finding volunteers to bring lunch for the team to the parish Monday through Friday, as well as families to host the team in their homes for dinner each night of the week. It is best if the team visits a different family each evening so they can meet as many parisioners as possible.

Each parish has the option of hosting a parish-wide potluck one evening during the week. Most parishes do this on Wednesday, but the day is flexible based on parish events and your pastor's schedule. This potluck offers the entire parish a chance to see the Totus Tuus program in action, and to help support the program at your parish.

The team will depart after the daytime program ends on Friday afternoon.
