Hundreds of Maine teens and children can participate in a week-long summer Catholic youth program for grades 1-12.

Registration is open for Totus Tuus 2023, scheduled to be presented in 10 Maine communities this summer: Houlton (June 18-23), Lewiston (June 18-23), Fort Kent (June 25-30), Jay and Farmington (June 25-30), Caribou (July 9-14), Scarborough (July 9-14), Bangor (July 23-28), Windham (July 23-28), Millinocket (July 30-Aug. 4), and Brunswick (July 30-Aug. 4).

Totus Tuus leads participants on an age-appropriate encounter with the Catholic faith through dynamic and faith-filled content. 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, according to a news release from Dave Guthro, communications director, Roman Catholic Diocese of Portland.

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 includes daily Mass, prayer, classroom teaching, lunch and games.
