1 min read

At the invitation of Speaker of the House Thomas M. Finneran, Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church Reverend Peter J. Gomes recently addressed the Massachusetts House of Representatives. The speech was part of Finneran’s Lyceum series, which brings special guests before the House to present their thoughts on a wide range of topics. Gomes spoke eloquently and humorously about “The Common-Wealth and the Civic Imagination: Cherishing the Public Mind,” which was very well received by all assembled.

In spite of his tremendously successful appearance, Reverend Gomes assured the members that he harbored no political ambitions of his own.
