K4J is a program that motivates children ages 6 – 9 years old to live virtue and love through their Catholic faith. We meet once a month to discuss our Virtue of the Month, Our Saint of the Month, and learn about our Catholic faith through games, skits, crafts, and song. We are then encouraged throughout the rest of the month at home with our take-home-packs.
