 Totus Tuus Missionaries are essential to the success of Totus Tuus. We hire young adults who are passionate about their Catholic faith to serve as summer missionaries and collaborates with parishes to offer week-long parish mission programs designed to teach and inspire children and youth.

We welcome applications from dynamic Catholics age 18 and older from the Diocese of Syracuse and beyond. Applicants must have an authentic faith and be actively living the teachings of the Catholic Church.
