August 2018 Family of the Month
Each month the Anoka Knights of Columbus choose a family that models Christian family values and visibly live by them every day. The family chosen for August 2018 is the Nick and Christina Johnson family from Dayton, MN.
Nick and Christina have been members of St. Stephen’s Catholic Church since 2012. They have two children. As a family, the Johnsons make living their Catholic faith a priority by regularly attending Mass and praying together. Both parents work diligently to set an example of Christian living for their children.
Both Nick and Christina are active in the parish life. Nick coordinates Eucharistic Ministers at Sunday Mass, participates in the parish Men’s Group and is an active member of Knights of Columbus. At the church, Christina is a lector, a catechist, serves with Liturgy of the Word for Children, helps with Vacation Bible School, coordinates the children’s area for Fall Fest and Spring Fiesta, is part of the pilot small women’s group, is a member of the Women of Wonder Group and provides childcare for their monthly meetings. At St. Stephen’s School, Christina serves on the school advisory council, is a volunteer coordinator, lunchroom volunteer, and substitute teacher.
