Totus Tuesday: Adoration Holy Hour

Named after John Paul II's motto Totus Tuus, meaning totally Yours, Totus Tuesday is a weekly holy hour run by the CSA from 8:00-9:00 P.M. on Tuesdays in St. Paul's.  Throughout this hour, the Blessed Sacrament is exposed for Adoration, while one of the chaplains hears confessions.  Totus Tuesday concludes with Benediction.  Please contact Ben Kelly ( for more information about this wonderful way to spend time in prayer with Our Lord!  Totus Tuesdays are always followed by our Super Tuesday hangouts in the Catholic Center Lounge.


At the beginning of the school year, the CSA holds an annual retreat at the Sacred Hearts Retreat Center in Wareham, MA, where members can prepare spiritually for the new school year and learn about how to get further involved in the CSA, FOCUS, and other branches of the Catholic community.  
We are currently working on getting other retreats up and running!  If you have any suggestions or feedback, please contact the members of SteerCom.
