At its March monthly meeting held at 7 Central, Masconomo Council 1232 Knights of Columbus hosted former Beverly resident and Endicott College graduate Michael Gearing, who summarized his role as a Catholic lay missionary in a university environment at MIT. A recent convert to Catholicism himself, Gearing has spent the past two years as a campus representative of FOCUS-Fellowship of Catholic University Students at MIT. There in a secular setting his mission has been to engage students in a dialogue toward Christ and the Christian tradition.
Masconomo Council Grand Knight Tom Finn thanked Gearing for his comments and wished him well for his mission of evangelization among university students.
