K4J’s YouTube channel features three promotional videos presenting how the K4J program works in parishes and schools, along with a separate video of K4J team leaders giving their testimony. For those who are new to K4J, the explanations and footage are a helpful way to catch a first glimpse of what the program is all about.

K4J in the Parish” features Fr James Wehner, who was vocations director for the diocese of Pittsburgh for seven years before becoming pastor of St Thomas More in Bethel, PA, where he met the K4J program. He is currently the rector and president of the Pontifical College Josephinum.

“I was so pleased to learn about the K4J program because it gets kids excited about their Catholic faith,” he said, noting that one of the program’s benefits is that it teaches children to understand and love the Mass as a place of personal encounter with Jesus. He also comments that the K4J program does not replace parish programs, but has been an effective complement to the religious instruction taking place in the parish.

presents Sheila Riley, the principal of St Thomas More school, who speaks about how the K4J program fits into the school’s educational program while also involving parents and creating a sense of community.

“I’m always amazed at the number of parents that just show up [at the K4J assembly]. They know what’s happening and they know when it’s happening and they’ve worked with their children over the month on the virtue,” she said, observing that the parents are also learning their faith along with the children.

Finally, the third video, “K4J Captains,” presents two sixth grade K4J captains who talk about the experience of being leaders for their younger peers, what they like the most, and how they see it helping the children—and themselves.
