Four teams let Totus Tuus summer program in 21 parishes
Totus Tuus, which is Latin for “totally yours,” is completing its fourth summer in the Diocese of Peoria. Started in six parishes, the catechetical program was taken to 21 parishes this year.
In addition to the team of Zachary Taylor, Stephen Tony, Lydia Perrilles and Maddie Conley mentioned in the story about how Totus Tuus was received in the LaSalle Catholic parishes last week, there were three other teams of missionaries at work in central Illinois this summer. They are:
— Erin Brine-Doyle, team leader; Nic Wilson, seminarian; Nick Tonnesen and Dani Hope Ruedisueli, who served at St. Philomena in Peoria, St. Matthew in Champaign, St. Mary in Canton, St. Louis in Princeton, and St. Patrick in Tolono;
— Amy Andrejasich, team leader; Clare Dust; Zak Leskanich, seminarian; and Mateusz (Matt) Koszarek, who worked with the students at St. Michael the Archangel in Streator, St. Matthew in Champaign, Immaculate Conception in Monmouth, Holy Cross in Champaign, and St. Joseph in Marseilles; and
— Luke Cottingham, team leader; Joey Muting; Hannah Musgrove and Caylee Kennedy, who served at St. Mary in Kickapoo, the parishes in the Danville Vicariate, St. Mary of the Woods in Princeville, St. Mark in Peoria, St. Mary in Metamora, and St. Patrick in Dwight.
Seminarian Lee Brokaw, who is assigned to the LaSalle Catholic parishes this summer, was the coordinator for training the teams this year and last year.
