TOTUS TUUS - This Summer at St. Elizabeth Ann – July 14-19

Totus Tuus is a Catholic 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 the understanding of, and strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ. It is only by establishing a real and personal relationship with Him who is “the way, the truth, and the life” that we can be led to the love of the Father in the Spirit and so be made sharers in the life of the Holy Trinity, for “no one can come to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
