Knowing that Homeboy Industries is in dire financial condition, some of its friends in town are sponsoring a fundraiser/book reading with Fr. Greg Boyle on September 21. Fr. Greg founded Homeboy in 1986, and it has become both an extraordinary ministry and a national model of gang intervention. As their logo says, “Nothing Stops a Bullet Like a Job.” Fr. Greg will talk about and read from his best selling book Tattoos on the Heart. Please hold the date. More details on this site in the next few days. If you would like information sent to you please click on the CONTACT button above, leave me your name and email address and I will be back with you promptly.
The suggested donation for tickets is $20. All of the ticket price will go to support Homeboy Industries. Fr. Boyle will also be signing copies of Tattoos on the Heart. The net proceeds from the book also will be donated to support Homeboy.
The event is co-sponsored by the Claremont United Church of Christ, and it will be held at the church, 322 W. Harrison, in Claremont. 7 p.m. sharp.
