MORRIS – Theresa Hudson is the Women of the Year for the Council of Catholic Women – Immaculate Conception Parish in Morris.
Hudson responded to a need expressed in the parish convocation for a parish women’s group. She, with several other women from the parish, researched, planned and began the first Council of Catholic Women group the parish has had since 1973. She served as the first president and graciously stayed on for a second term. She continues to volunteer in whatever capacity she can.
As a member of the Community Life Commission, she had been responsible for the annual volunteer appreciation dinner, the Lenten lunches hosted by local churches, donuts and coffee after all the Masses once a month, dinner to welcome new members to the parish and other social functions of the parish, according to a news release from the parish.
For years she coordinated taking communion each Sunday to the local nursing homes. When her brother, Jake, could not make an RCIA meeting, she substituted as the instructor. She is a band booster for the local high school and also is a part-time librarian for Immaculate Conception School and has conducted summer programs for the students .
Hudson is the go-to-gal for the parish, according to the news release.
