In this workshop, Fr. Greg Boyle will explore the strategy of Jesus that directs us to our ultimate goal of a community of kinship. Jesus models the truth: only the soul that ventilates the world with tenderness has any chance of changing the world. Throughout the Gospels, Jesus’ tenderness defines his relationships with all whom he encounters, especially those at the margins of society. With Jesus, we imagine a circle of compassion – and then we imagine nobody standing outside that circle.
Rev. Gregory J. Boyle, SJ
From 1986-92, Fr. Greg Boyle served as Pastor of Dolores Mission in Los Angeles and, in 1988, along with parish community members started Homeboy Industries, now the largest gang rehabilitation program in the world. The author and speaker has received the California Peace Prize and been inducted into the California Hall of Fame. In 2017, Fr. Boyle received the University of Notre Dame’s Laetare medal, the oldest and most prestigious award given to American Catholics.
