Totus Tuus Catechetical Program for Grade School & High School

“Totus Tuus is Latin for ‘totally yours’ and 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 their understanding of, and strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ. The program strives to bring our faith to life by creating a balance between knowledge of the meaning of the Sacraments and an authentic Sacramental life.”

Trinity Parish is hosting Totus Tuus June 19th through June 23rd 2017 for Grades 1-8, and June 18th through June 22nd 2017 for High School.

Parish Feast Day Celebration
