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 grade school children are asked to bring any recess equipment they may want to use for recess. All are invited to a parish “potluck” on Wednesday evening at 6:00 PM to meet the team, learn about the content of the program, ask questions, and hear the children sings some songs. Join the Duc in Altum students for daily Mass at 11:15 AM Monday-Thursday.
