WELCOME TO TOTUS TUUS!
Diocese of Tyler
Totus Tuus is a Catholic summer 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 their understanding Jesus Christ and strengthen their faith in Him. It is only by establishing a real and personal relationship with Him that we can be led to love of the Father in the Spirit and so be made sharers in the life of the Holy Trinity.
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 seeks to foster openness to vocations in the young people we serve as well as among the teachers. This is accomplished by placing special emphasis on the importance and necessity of prayer, Eucharistic devotion and Marian devotion, in addition to catechetical instruction and formation in the Catholic Faith.
The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion and an openness to their vocation by the constant challenge to give themselves entirely to Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of her.
Totus Tuus gave me some great long lasting relationships, with my teammates, the priests, and the seminarians around the diocese! It's a crazy summer, but a very fulfilling and joy filled one!

I loved Totus Tuus as a kid and a teen, and I'm still loving it as a team member now! Teaching on the team has helped me grow so much in holiness, and I'd definitely recommend it to any young Catholic who want to share and grow in their Faith!
As a Totus Tuus missionary, I had the opportunity to spread the beautiful Catholic faith to young children and teens across the Diocese of Tyler. I also met amazing people that continuously push me to live a holy and virtuous life!"
