FR. GREG BOYLE, SJ OF HOMEBOY INDUSTRIES SPEAKS AT ALL-SCHOOL ASSEMBLY
We were beyond blessed to have Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ and two of the Homeboys - Ashley and David - from Homeboy Industries, the largest and most successful gang intervention program in the U.S., speak to our entire student body on Thursday, September 8, 2022. They shared their personal stories of resilience, redemption and radical kinship and provided a powerful reminder that we are "called to the margins not to make a difference but so that those on the margins can make us different."

Following the assembly, after signing autographs and taking some selfies, the three met with a small group of students and faculty for a Q&A session, where they shared how our students can take action in creating kinship and building community. David, who works in merchandising for Homeboy Industries, also spent some time sharing his business expertise with students in our entrepreneurship class. Fr. Greg, David and Ashley went on to speak at several other venues during their time in Colorado including at Regis University.
