Maureen Scanlon"We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything in the hands of God, who alone could save us, for even He can raise the dead. And he did help us and saved us from a terrible death." 2 Corinthians 1:9-10

 

God’s profound generosity manifested itself with the premature birth of their eleventh child, Joseph. Maureen and her family were recipients of an extraordinary miracle as Maureen was rescued from such great danger of death.

Come and hear the story of how God’s tender mercy touched and changed lives of her family, friends, the medical community and even strangers as He allowed Maureen to be brought to the brink of death that morning. Just moments away from being pronounced dead, God raised her up to show his children His infinite power and compassion, His desire for all men’s salvation and that through Him all things are possible.

Born and raised Catholic, Maureen is the mother of eleven children. She and her husband Jim have been involved in all aspects of Pro-Life work since early in thier marriage-from Operation Rescue, to hot line counseling, to housing unwed mothers. Their lives and actions are anchored in knowing that God cannot be outdone in generosity. Maureen, Jim and family reside in Camarillo. They are members of St. Paschal Baylon Parish, Thousand Oaks.
