Our All-School Read this summer has been
Barking to the Choir, a book about Fr. Greg Boyle, SJ's work with Homeboy Industries in Los Angeles. Homeboy Industries is "the largest and most successful gang intervention, rehab, and reentry program in the world."
Fr. Greg's second book provides a uniquely Jesuit message of compassion and kinship, detailing a lifetime of transformative work in his community.
We hope our students, faculty, and staff will all benefit from sharing this literary experience and return to campus eager for powerful discussion.
Greg came to speak at BC High about his work and
Tattoos on the Heart a number of years ago and our community was truly blown away. If you are looking for a captivating summer read, consider picking up
Barking to the Choir and join in the discussion!
