Totus Tuus

Helping our youth strive to say, "Lord I am Totally Yours".

Totus Tuus is a week-long summer camp held at our parish, which demonstrates that one can be a faithful Catholic and still have fun. Morning “pump up,” silly skits and songs, snacks, recess, water fights, and so much more infuse the element of fun into this program while the youth learn about God’s love for them and the beauty of our Catholic faith!

Four college students, including seminarians from our diocese, will share their energy, enthusiasm and love for  Jesus Christ and our Catholic faith. Totus Tuus includes sacraments, skits, songs, games,  crafts, inspiring & interactive teaching & LOTS OF FUN!

We are looking forward to seeing your children at this exciting summer camp.  Though the Totus Tuus Team handles the teaching aspect, there will still be a need for a number of our wonderful volunteers to help make this a success.  Thank you in advance for making this a huge success at our parish.  Please contact Clare Narusis at 815-338-3377 or email This email address is being protected from spambots.
