Father Greg Boyle


Nationally acclaimed Father Greg Boyle, the Founder and Executive Director of Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles, the nation’s model gang-intervention program, will present and discuss his new book

Tattoos on the Heart: The Power Of Boundless Compassion

Don’t miss the rare opportunity to hear this phenomenal man of our time, as he shares his insights into gang intervention, rehabilitation, and social justice.

 

Father Greg Boyle’s book: Tattoos on the Heart

WILL BE ON SALE AT THIS EVENT

 

“From moving vignettes about gangsters breaking into tears or finding themselves worthy of love and affirmation, to moments of spiritual reflection and sidesplittingly funny banter between him and the homies, Boyle creates a convincing and even joyful treatise on the sacredness of every life. Considering that he has buried more than 150 young people from gang-related violence, the joyful tenor of the book remains an astounding literary and spiritual feat.”
Publishers Weekly

“This is an astonishing book about life in the barrio, about suffering and dignity, death and resurrection, one of my favorite books in years.  It is lovely and tough and delicate beyond my ability to describe. Father Boyle is a deeply human person of faith and action, with an amazing sense of humor and grace, a gift for storytelling that left me in tears of both sorrow and laughter, and shaking my head with gratitude for his calling and for this book.”
— Anne Lamott, author of Grace (Eventually)
