Fr. Greg Boyle SJ

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 CafeĢ 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.
