Lesser Daughters and Junior Knights of Peter Claver from the Kansas City metropolitan region brought every one of the four with them June 13 to 15 at the 2014 social event of the Junior Division of the Central States District of the Knights of Peter Claver and Ladies Auxiliary.
Held at Harris-Stowe University in St. Louis, the meeting united youth from nine states from Tennessee to Colorado.
Also the vicinity of the Kansas City territory's appointment — originating from both sides of the state line — was felt.
Erica Baker was chosen Junior Daughter region president. Raquel Barnett was chosen area secretary. Nyla Clement was chosen area treasurer. Mary Alice Brooks was chosen area courtesan at arms.
Derrick Kagwanja was chosen Junior Knight area VP. Colin Barnes was chosen locale treasurer. Felix Anudike-Uzomah was chosen locale secretary. Wick Sonis was chosen area sergeant at arms.
What's more the verbal confrontation group from St. Monica, headed by Derrick Kagwanja, commanded the competition. Truth be told, they drew the consideration of Junior Knight chief Edward Ellison.
The point of the verbal confrontation was "Ought to the legislature be included in the elimation of neediness?"
Not wide enough for Kagwanja and his group. They contended physical destitution is a manifestation of the deeper issue of profound and educated neediness. Deal with profound and savvy destitution, and physical neediness will be drastically diminished if not killed.
Educated destitution, he said, prompts obliviousness and division. What's more otherworldly neediness can be cured by learning and understanding of the Catholic confidence to which the Knights and Ladies of Peter Claver have constantly swore their lives to maintain.
The St. Monica group earned the right to speak to the Central States District at the national competition.
The Kansas City youth kept on awing the grown-ups at the meeting.
The District president, Charles Jean-Baptiste, saw Junior Knight Felix Anundike-Uzomah tenderly go up against a senior knight who lit up a cigarette, amiably helping the senior to remember the dangers of disease.
Past Deputy Supreme Commander Walter Allen got fast answers when he tested the Kansas City appointment with "What's next?"
"I need to be national chief of the Junior Division," Donovan Watts replied without a second thought.
"By being a genuine Catholic Knight in every feeling of the saying," Watts answered.
