Father Gregory Boyle, author of the inspirational memoir Tattoos on the Heart: the Power of Boundless Compassion, will speak at a program presented by the Friends of the Altadena Library at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday May 1 at the Altadena Senior Center. A Los Angeles Times best-seller for over a year, this award-winning book is filled with life-changing, uplifting stories of faith and redemption. His cure for what he sees as a “global sense of failure” is as radical as it is simple: boundless restorative love.
Father Greg is founder of Homeboy Industries, the largest gang intervention and re-entry program in the country. This non-profit offers jobs, legal help, mental health services, tattoo removal, and other free programs to thousands each year. Other enterprises include Homeboy Bakery and Homegirl Cafe and Catering.
