June 2019 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 June 2019 is the Chris and Laura Hudson Family from Anoka, MN.
Laura has been a member of St. Stephen’s since childhood and was a student at St. Stephen’s school while Chris became a member of the Catholic Church through the St. Stephen’ RCIA program. They were married in 2010 and have an 11-year-old daughter and two sons ages 10 and 8. All three children attend St. Stephens school and their daughter is often an alter server, helps babysit at St. Stephen’s Fall Fest and Festival of Flowers events and participates in the choir with her brother.
Chris is a member of the Knights of Columbus and Laura has been an active member of the Women of Wonder and currently serves on the St. Stephen’s School Advisory Council. For many years Laura chaired the beer garden for Summerfest and Fall Fest and is currently the chairperson of St. Stephen’s Mardi Gras Gala. Chris also helps out with these events by doing a lot of the heavy lifting.
The Hudson family makes starting the day and ending the day with prayer a family priority and enjoys having dinner time together, playing board games, Friday movie and pizza nights, working on puzzles and spending time at the lake with extended family members. They often attend Sunday morning Mass with grandpa and grandma and enjoy finding time to reach out to the needy through community work, volunteering and their jobs.
