‘The ConQuest Leadership Wenceslaus Anthony Memorial Award 2022’
The ConQuest Boys Cub have imparted Leadership Qualities to Boys between the ages of 8 and 14 years, and these Qualities revolved around the following 5 virtues: viz., Charity, Faith, Love, Responsibility, and Generosity; and, with keeping ‘Jesus as the Leader’.
