Totus Tuus Summer Youth Program Returning June 27–July 2
(NOTE: We are still looking for two host families to house the college student team that will be leading the Totus Tuus program. They will need a place to sleep and a simple breakfast from Saurday night, June 26, through Friday night, July 2. If you'd like to offer to host for that week, please contact Paul Kankiewicz.)
The Totus Tuus summer youth program will be returning to St. Elizabeth June 27–July 2! Totus Tuus is a program for grades 1–12 which will give participants a chance to learn more about their faith, grow closer to Our Lord, AND have tons of fun while doing it! A team of four college students will lead the program throughout the week. This year's topics are Virtue, the Beatitudes, and the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary. There are two tracks:
- 1st–6th grade will run during the day Monday, June 28, through Friday, July 2, from 9:00 AM–2:30 PM.
- 7th–12th grade will run every evening from Sunday, June 27, through Thursday, July 1, at 7:00–9:00 PM.
