Hundreds of Maine teens and children can participate in a weeklong Catholic youth program for grades 1 to 12.

Totus Tuus will be presented in 10 Maine communities this summer. The program is organized by the Diocese of Portland’s Office of Vocations.

Teams of men and women, including seminarians and college students, are hired each year through a rigorous selection process and spend the first two weeks of the summer in training. In collaboration with local pastors and parish coordinators, the teams spend the remainder of the summer traveling throughout the diocese conducting the program.

Totus Tuus features daily Mass, prayer, classroom teaching, lunch and games. Social distancing and a wide range of protocols that have worked successfully at Maine’s Catholic schools in offering five days per week of in-person instruction this year will also be utilized during the summer program.

The 2021 Totus Tuus schedule in Maine is as follows; anyone to register for any location:

June 20-25: St. John Vianney Parish in Fort Kent, St. Joseph Parish in Farmington;
