Parents encouraged to sign children up for faith day camp
“Totus Tuus,” Pope Saint John Paul II’s episcopal motto meaning “Totally Yours, ” is a weeklong program for children in grades 1-12. Its mission is to inspire in young people a true longing for holiness. Organized the Diocese of Portland’s Office of Vocations, each session is led by diocesan seminarians and college students. The schedule features daily Mass, prayer, classroom teaching, lunch, music, games, and more.
St. Mary’s, St. Agnes’ and St. Paul’s families are encouraged to send their children to the local program, which will be at the Parish of the Precious Blood in Caribou July 14-19. Transportation will be provided.
The program for children runs from 9am-3pm while the teen program runs from 7:30-9:30pm
“They show a real desire to want to grow closer to God and learn more about their faith,” said Liam Gallagher, a diocesan seminarian who led the “Totus Tuus” team in Maine in 2018. “It’s awe-inspiring. It’s incredible. That’s why we’re doing it. That’s what it’s all about. It’s the new evangelization at work.”
