Tutus Tuus 2022

Totus Tuus is a youth program run by the Archdiocese of Chicago. St. Norbert/OLB will be hosting 4 college-aged missionaries who will work with our youth for an entire week! The Totus Tuus Team will inspire our young people with their energy and enthusiasm for the Catholic faith through skits, games, songs and interactive teaching.

Here are the ways that we need support: 

Host Families: Two host families needed from Saturday, July 23rd - Friday, July 29th (one for two male leaders; the other for two women leaders) to provide sleeping arrangements, a morning continental breakfast at 7:00am and possibly the use of laundry facilities at some point over the course of the week. At the home, missionaries are required to have separate sleeping quarters from the family. The missionaries can be paired in one room together. We ask that separate beds, air mattresses, etc. be provided for each team member and that a private bathroom be made available during the missionaries’ stay. Breakfast can be simple – coffee, cereal, fruit or toast is sufficient. Please email JoEllen ([email protected]) if you are interested in being a host family. 

Lunches for the missionaries are brought to the school by 11:45 am and can be home cooked, store brought, or delivered. 

Dinners are a wonderful way to meet the missionaries and host them in your own home. All parish families are welcome to host the missionaries even if they do not have youth in the Totus Tuus program. Dinner must begin at 5:15 pm and end by 6:30 pm due to having the evening program starting at 7:00 pm. (For dinner on Saturday, June 23, the team will attend the 5 pm Mass and will need dinner afterwards.) A family may prepare and serve the meal, have food brought in or take the team out to eat. Other options: meal delivery to the parish office for the team to eat before the evening programming or giving gift cards for a dinner out for the missionary team of 4.

Youth Volunteers (grades 7-12) assist our Totus Tuus leaders throughout the day. They welcome the students in the morning, assist with lessons and activities, supervise the students during lunchtime and recess, and help see them off in the afternoon. There are two shifts per day: 8:30-12 noon and 12 noon - 3 p.m. Volunteers during the morning shift will attend daily Mass with the students. Volunteers in the afternoon shift will supervise lunch and recess. Snacks will be provided for the youth volunteers. They should eat lunch before or after their shifts. If students are interested in volunteering for the entire day, we will find a break time for lunch. They should pack their own lunch.

Thank you. Please reach out to JoEllen Cattapan with any questions.
