TOTUS TUUS is a fun and energetic parish-based summer catechetical program, for both grade school age children and junior and senior high school youth. We gather qualified college students and seminarians on teams of four in order to train them and send them out on the road to spread the Good News of Jesus and Christ in various parishes through the Diocese of Lexington.
The program began in Wichita, Kansas over twenty years ago, and has since spread to many dioceses across the country, including the Diocese of Lexington. With its curriculum on a six-year cycle, every year provides fresh, vibrant catechesis.
2017 Parish Dates:
Good Shepherd, Frankfort, KY – June 10-16
St. Joseph, Winchester, KY – June 17-23

All parish spots for summer 2017 have been reserved.
During the week, children entering grades first through sixth participate in four classes each day, attend daily Mass, learn the Mass parts and liturgical songs, participate in games, icebreakers, skits, songs, recess, and prayer.
The grade school program runs Monday through Friday and helps children to learn and be reinforced in important principles of their Catholic faith. College students who are on fire with their faith give the students examples which the youth can observe and then imitate.
