If you have any questions or would like to volunteer, please contact the faith formation office.  
We still need two families to host either the two female young adults or the two seminarians for the week and provide a comfortable place to sleep & breakfast.


Totus Tuus is a fun and energetic Catholic youth program taught by seminarians and college students throughout the Diocese of Joliet. From catechetical teaching sessions, Sacraments, and Mass to songs, games and skits - your child is sure to have fun while learning more about their Faith!

Totus Tuus seeks to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by constantly challenging them to give themselves entirely to Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of Her.


Totus Tuus, a Latin phrase meaning “totally yours,” was the motto of St. John Paul II. Taken from St. Louis de Montfort’s True Devotion to Mary, it signifies our desire to give ourselves entirely to Jesus Christ through the hands of our Blessed Mother Mary. It also expresses our effort to give all that we have to every young person we encounter.
