A charismatic visionary who launched the largest, most successful gang intervention and rehab program in the US. His programs including Homeboy Bakery, Homeboy Silkscreen, Homeboy/Homegirl Merchandise, and Homegirl Café have put hundreds of gang members to work, rather than into penitentiaries.
Father Greg’s first book, Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion, was released in 2010, and quickly became a NY Times Best Seller. The 2013 film “G-DOG” (the endearing name given to him by his homeys – all former LA gang members) tells the entertaining, hilarious and unlikely story of how a white Jesuit priest became an expert in transforming the lives of thousands of Latino, Asian, and African American gang members. A sought after speaker, Fr. Boyle delights audiences across the nation with his insightful and oftentimes humorous blending of gospel and street stories.
We do not currently have any tours for Fr. Greg Boyle SJ.
