Experience the Best Summer of Your Life!
“To inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion and openness to their vocation by the constant challenge to give themselves entirely to Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of Her.”
Parish teachers are grouped into teams of four, each consisting of two men and two women, and are invited to a different parish every week of the summer where they conduct a week-long “parish mission,” teaching and inspiring the parish’s first through twelfth grade youth.
Totus Tuus Teacher Responsibilities
Pray Daily and Frequent the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Eucharist
As a Totus Tuus Missionary Teacher, each day you will pray the Liturgy of the Hours in the morning, evening and night, pray a daily Rosary and Chaplet of Divine Mercy, attend daily Mass and weekly Adoration.
Sacrifice for Others
By being “Totus Tuus” you will need to put the needs of others before your own, particularly those of the youth that you will encounter this summer.
“The Self lives only by dying, finds its identity and its happiness only be
self-forgetfulness, self-giving, self-sacrifice, and agape love.” –Peter Kreeft
Be a Visible Witness of the Catholic Faith
All those you encounter will look to you as a witness of the Catholic Faith. This means conducting yourself in thought, word and deed in accord with the Church’s teachings.
We will follow the Totus Tuus Schedule throughout training to model the prayer life of a Totus Tuus teacher and establish the routine of teaching the program.
