Duc in Altum


 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED
AT DUC IN ALTUM THIS YEAR!


DUC IN ALTUM 
(Latin for “Put out into the deep” – Luke 5:4) is a Summer Catechetical Program for Children and Youth 
Grade School (entering Grades 1-5): Mon-Thurs 9:00am-2:30pm**
Middle & High School (entering Grades 6-12): Sun-Thurs 7:30pm-9:30pm


Duc in altum is a diocesan program that gathers together college students and seminarians onto teams of four each and sends them out to parishes to spread the GOOD NEWS of our LORD among children and youth. For grade school children the program consists in catechetical instruction, songs, games, daily Mass, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, lunch, recess and more. Duc in altum balances strong catechetical content with having FUN!!!! The high school program has catechetical instruction, a night of Eucharistic Adoration and Reconciliation, and a night of fellowship with the team. The goal of both programs is to help them to know the LORD and love him more deeply. Because of the youthfulness and energy of the teachers the children and youth have FUN as well!

**The elementary children are asked to bring a sack lunch, as lunch will not be provided. 
 
All are invited to a parish potluck on Thursday evening at 6:00pm to meet the team and learn what the youth have been learning during the week.  Please bring a dish to share.  This will be followed by Eucharistic Adoration in the church from 7:30 - 8:30 pm.
