Totus Tuus Summer Youth Program
Totus Tuus (Latin for "Totally Yours," Saint John Paul II's motto), is a summer Catholic youth program offered by the Office of Youth Ministry in the Archdiocese of St. Louis for youth entering grades first through sixth the following fall dedicated to sharing the Gospel. The mission of Totus Tuus is to bring young people in to a relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church with the goal of lifelong discipleship. Emphasis is placed on dynamic sharing of the faith, Sacraments, and a whole lot of joyful fun.

Payment can be made via cash, check, or online. Checks should be made payable to St. Theodore, with 'Totus Tuus' in the memo line.
Registration will open the first week of April and be available online or in the school office.
Students must be entering grades 1st through 6th in Fall 2023 to participate in the full day program, or 5 years old by August 1, 2023 to participate in the half-day Kindergarten program.
All parents must sign a waver for their child to participate either on or before the first day of the program.
We are accepting a limited number of high school and middle school helpers to make the week run smoothly. Volunteers are primarily needed for snack, recess, and assisting with our Kindergarten program. Due to the fact that this program is primarily staffed by a team from the Archdiocese, we will need fewer volunteers than in previous years. Volunteers are accepted on a first come, first served basis and registration to volunteer will close when we reach capacity.
