Do you like games, learning about Jesus, water balloon fights, and human sundaes? Curious about what that last one is all about? Sign up for our Totus Tuus program this summer, July 16-21! Totus Tuus (which is similar to Vacation Bible School) will teach students more about their faith, help them to grow in prayer, and (importantly) they'll have FUN while doing it! For more information and to sign up, see the website: goodshepherdgv.org/totustuus.
Additionally, we need lots of adult and high school volunteers to make the week happen! If you have teens looking for service hours, this is a great way to do it! For any questions, contact Alex at the parish office: email@example.com.

What is Totus Tuus?
Totus Tuus (Latin for "totally yours") is a Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. Totus Tuus is very similar to what we've done in the past for VBS, including lots of fun and games for all involved! The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in their understanding of, and strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ. This goal is accomplished through five essential elements: Proclamation of the Gospel, Apologetics (examining the reasons for our Faith), Christian Witness, Celebration of the Sacraments, Active Witness of the Missionary Nature of the Church.
