In Memory of Mayor Thomas M. Menino

Where's the Spirit?

A quiet faith shaped Menino's life, private and public

In memory of former Boston mayor, Thomas M. Menino, we offer you this reflection and video on his love and commitment to the city of Boston.  Sharing insight into his spiritual life, Wangsness notes that while “Menino was not the sort of religious man who put his faith on display…[it was] a powerful and perhaps underappreciated force driving his work as mayor, his attention to poor neighborhoods, his care for the marginalized.” We invite you to celebrate the essence of his compassion and connection to community today.

What drives me is the people, what drives me is the kids in the schools...it’s not about anything else but that.
— Thomas M. Menino
