Special Guest Speaker
When Mary Rutkoski's husband, Thomas, died on June 7, 2011, she automatically
became the president and CEO of two nonprofit organizations he had
- Gospa Missions and Abode for Children. This
turn of events was completely in
God's hands. Never could she
ever imagine spending her life in this role. But she
has learned that God does not require our permission when
He chooses to act.
eldest of eight children, Mary grew up in a large Catholic family. Her mother
was the eldest of
fifteen! Attending only Catholic schools, she thought the whole
world was Catholic. She earned her
B.A. in Spanish from Mount Mercy College
(now Carlow University) in Pittsburgh, in 1968. Yet immediately upon graduation
she stopped going to Mass. Her first job was with the Gulf Oil Corporation, traveling
across the entire
country and even Puerto Rico (thanks to the Spanish). Soon
Carlow College called and she was offered
the job of Director of Alumnae Relations
at the ripe age of 21. A few months later she met the man who would change
life forever. Thomas and Mary were married in 1972, in a Baptist church by a
evangelist. And they lived without God in their lives for eighteen years.
Until one day in
August, 1987, when Tom heard God speaking to him. Nothing would
ever be the same.
Tom experienced a dramatic conversion and Mary was not happy
with his sudden transformation. It took Tom eight
years of praying and fasting for
God to soften her heart, but He did it. In those eight years Thomas had
noted evangelist traveling all over the world to share his amazing conversion story.
Mary went everywhere
with him, living a story that would challenge the credulity of
any sane person. But she wouldn't
change a minute. She'll tell you why!
