The celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the “source and summit” of the daily Totus Tuus schedule.

Marian Devotion

Totus Tuus catechists and counselors will lead the young people to Jesus for a week; however, Mary will lead them to Jesus for a lifetime. Therefore, Totus Tuus promotes Marian devotion. Meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary, we come to see how Mary always leads us to her Son. 


Totus Tuus instructs young people in the basic tenets of the Catholic faith to cultivate both a firm intellectual grounding and a solid relationship with Jesus. All of our teaching aims to help young people grow in the understanding of, strengthen their faith in, and, most importantly, develop an intimate friendship with Jesus Christ.


Totus Tuus strives to foster Christian vocations by encouraging young people to begin discerning God’s call in their life to be married, a priest, a religious, or single. Because team missionaries are striving to live an authentic Christian life and are actively discerning their vocation, they can better help the youth to do the same.


Totus Tuus demonstrates that one can be a faithful Catholic and still have fun. Morning “pump up,” silly skits and songs, recess, water fights in the parishes, and all of the many elements infuse fun in the program.

The Sacred Scriptures and the Catechism of the Catholic Church provide the foundation of the catechetical instruction of the Totus Tuus summer mission program. 

The 2023 curriculum will focus on

the History of Salvation along with the
Sorrowful Mysteries of the Rosary.

Totus Tuus has divided the four pillars of the Catechism into a six-year teaching cycle:

  • Year One: The History of Salvation

  • Year Two: The Apostles’ Creed

  • Year Three: The Sacraments

  • Year Four: The Commandments

  • Year Five: The Virtues

  • Year Six: Prayer and the Our Father

To complement this six-year cycle, Totus Tuus follows a four-year cycle dedicated to the mysteries of the Rosary:

  • The Joyful Mysteries

  • The Luminous Mysteries

  • The Sorrowful Mysteries 

  • The Glorious Mysteries
