Transformation happening at St. Charles Lwanga Center

Daija Loggins credits her future to her association with the St. Charles Lwanga center where she began to learn about herself as a black Catholic. Her journey through the Kujenga (meaning “build” in Swahili) program provided leadership development which she, now as a young adult, is helping to pass along as a mentor in the program. Loggins is studying early elementary education at Missouri Baptist University and studied on the campus in St. Louis.

In the 1990's sitcom Seinfeld, Elaine warns an employee that her friend George is a "bad seed."

"A horrible seed," she says. "One of the worst seeds I've ever seen."

Ultimately, she takes it back, describing him as a "fine seed."

Father Art Cavitt might use that term to describe Daniel Crawford, a 21-year-old from Florissant who has transformed himself into a good seed at St. Charles Lwanga Center.
