Totus Tuus July 2015
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.
The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in their understanding of and strengthening their faith in Jesus Christ. It is only by establishing a real and personal relationship with Him that we can be led to the love of the Father in the Spirit and so be made sharers in the life of the Holy Trinity. "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me" (John 4:16). Totus Tuus strives to bring our faith to life by creating a balance between knowledge of the meaning of the Sacraments and an authentic Sacramental life.
Totus Tuus seeks to foster openness to vocations in the young people we serve as well as among the teachers. This is accomplished by placing special emphasis on the importance and necessity of prayer, Eucharistic devotion, and Marian devotion, in addition to catechetical instruction and formation in the Catholic faith.
This year, Totus Tuus will be held on July 12-16, 2015 in the evening for students who will be in grades 7-12 during the 2015-2016 school year and during the day on July 13-17, 2015 for students who will be in grades 1-6 during the 2015-2016 school year. Call the church office at 683-6569 for more information.
Go Make A Difference!
The Pope Francis Build is a collaborative project of the Wichita Diocese and Habitat for Humanity, to honor Pope Francis. The two homes will be built at 1802 and 1808 N. Green, in Holy Savior Catholic Church boundaries. What a wonderful opportunity to accept the Stewardship challenge and live life the way God intended.
How can you help?
An unlimited amount of prayer support is needed. Pray for the volunteers and pray for the families that will eventually live in the homes. Let us join our prayers together as we put God's love in to action building homes, communities and hope.
We need volunteers! Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age and in good physical health. St. Thomas Aquinas has committed to providing workers on October 3rd (reserved for STAY and Young Adult Group first and then opened to parish) and October 10th (open to entire parish). There are two volunteer shifts available. They are 8-11:30 am and 11:30-2:30 pm. We will provide 20 volunteers for each shift, a total of 40 for each day. A parish wide email with a link to a SignUp Genius will be coming shortly. For more information, you can also call or email Krista Onofrio at konofrio@StThomasWichita.com or 316-683-6569.
The cost to build these homes with Habitat for Humanity is $100,000. Please consider making a sacrificial monetary donation to this worthy venture. Checks should be made payable to the Catholic Diocese of Wichita, who in turn will write on check to Habitat for Humanity. Any amount will be appreciated. For more information contact Mike Wescott at (316) 269-3917. In kind donations such as plumbing, lumber, etc. are accepted from Corporate Sponsors. Please contact Ann Fox (316) 269-0755. This is a wonderful way for our parish to make a generous, courageous and sacrificial sharing of our personal resources. Let's make a difference!
