Totus Tuus is a summer Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through evangelization, catechesis, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. Our week-long Parish Summer Catechetical Program assists parents and parishes in the evangelizing and catechizing of their youth by supplementing the work they are already doing.
The mission of Totus Tuus is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness, a deep desire for daily conversion, and an openness to their vocation by constantly challenging them to give themselves entirely to Christ through Mary and by continually strengthening their prayer lives in imitation of her.
The Totus Tuus program is open to any students entering grades 1 – 12.
There is no fee for this program for members of St. Lawrence, Holy Family, Holy Spirit and St. Mary's parishes. For all other students, registration is $20. each. Payments can be mailed or dropped off at the St. Lawrence Parish Office, 1607 N West St., Carroll, IA 51401
Totus Tuus will be held at the St. Lawrence Church & School in Carroll, IA from July 23 – 28, 2017.

· The evening session, for students entering 7th – 12th grades, will be from 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm, Sunday – Thursday.
