Welcome!


 

We welcome all families who wish to register their children in the parish faith formation and sacrament preparation programs for the upcoming year 2017-2018.

Our program is meant to support the faith formation that is already occurring through you, the parents and guardians.  YOU are the most important teachers and models of faith for your children. We cannot emphasize strongly enough that regular Mass attendance, ongoing stewardship and involvement in the parish is essential to the foundation of strong Catholic faith.  You pass on to your children your priorities, attitudes, reverence and appreciation for the faith. What you do (or don’t do) does matter! Thank you for making the commitment to educate your children in the Catholic faith.  We are here to assist you on your journey and we sincerely look forward to developing a relationship with your family.  God bless!

At Camp Totus Tuus, one of the only Catholic summer camps in the state of Kansas, Catholic youth will have an intense week of great fun and fellowship with other Catholic youth from across the Diocese of Wichita and the Midwest while experiencing the power and riches of the Catholic Faith.

The camp “curriculum” is a well balanced combination of sacraments, prayer, and fun. Presentations by counselors, small group discussions, and group activities provide an exceptional learning environment for youth with a wide range of learning disciplines. These learning sessions provide opportunities for the youth to discover more about God, themselves, and their peers.

The primary and fundamental focus of Camp Totus Tuus is the development of the youths’ spiritual lives and their ability to hear God’s call in their life. Holy Mass, Adoration, Confession, the Liturgy of the Hours, the Rosary, and the Chaplet of Divine Mercy are the foundation of camp. Prayer is central

However, because this is a summer  to the mission of the Church; as such, Camp Totus Tuus infuses this concept within the youth.camp and not school, fun is equally important and necessary. Games and activities such as Totus Tuus Olympics, swimming, canoeing, skits, and Catechetical Jeopardy keep the atmosphere relaxed yet exciting and allow young people of all interests and abilities to take part and enjoy.

Founded in 1996, Camp Totus Tuus is for youth entering grades 5 through 12 and is held on campgrounds just south of Lyons, Kansas.
