From the Director of Faith Formation:
Summer Fun & Faith Formation Opportunities
Summer will be here so soon! Are you looking for constructive and fun learning activities to fill up your son or daughter's lazy hazy days of summer? Wishing your child had a greater knowledge and experience of our living Catholic faith? Please consider this NEW faith building, instructive, fun and life changing summer program.
Totus Tuus is a Latin phrase that means "totally yours". In this case, it refers to "Totally Yours, oh Lord, I want to know you and follow you!" Isn't that what we pray and hope for our children and teens; that they would long to follow the ways of Jesus and not be lead astray by negative influences?
Totus Tuus is a summer parish program that will be offered for children and youth at Saint John's Church he week of July 18 - 26. Cost is $20 per child.
A trained team of young adult men and women will lead as mentors and faith filled witnesses who guide and teach children and youth how to be closer to Jesus Christ AND understand the depth and richness of our Catholic faith. This learning experience is engaging, active, fun and satisfying to young people who are hungry for and need spiritual meaning and understanding in their lives.
