Summer Discipleship Camp Totus Tuus



Camp Totus Tuus is an immersion experience into the incredible richness of our Catholic faith and the journey to discipleship for Middle School youth.

Totus what?!?!

Totus tuus is a Latin phrase meaning “totally thine.” Saint Pope John Paul II chose this phrase for his apostolic motto because he felt a strong draw to Jesus through  the intercession of his mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary. These words come from a longer Latin prayer of Consecration to Mary written by Saint Louis de Montfort. 

The entire prayer is:
"Totus tuus ego sum, et omnia mea tua sunt. Accipio te in mea omnia. Praebe mihi cor tuum, Maria." 

Which translates to:
"I belong entirely to you, and all that I have is yours. I take you for my all. O Mary, give me your heart"

Amen!
