The Second Annual Peter J. Gomes Service Award

Background

In 2016, Congressman Seth Moulton (D-MA) established the Peter J. Gomes Service Award, to be given annually to the individual in the Sixth District who best epitomizes the qualities of integrity, compassion, and commitment to community that were the foundation of the late Reverend Professor Peter J. Gomes’ teachings.

“Reverend Gomes was my mentor and my friend,” said Moulton. “He once wrote, “The very definition of service is to love our neighbors as ourselves, work for peace and not for war, and remember that the only hands on earth to do the work of service are our own.” His example influenced my own journey to serve in the Marines, and later as a Member of Congress. I am honored to establish this award here in the Sixth District to honor his legacy and commitment to public service.”

The Reverend Professor Peter J. Gomes was a Christian minister who served for nearly forty years in The Memorial Church of Harvard University, a space erected to honor the Harvard public servants who died in World War I. As a preacher, teacher, author, and leader, he influenced many with his ready wit and wisdom and, perhaps above all, with his commitment to service, whether to his immediate community, in support of those in the armed forces, or to universal humanitarian causes.

2016 Recipient
