Jesuit Father Greg Boyle, who started a social enterprise
in Los Angeles to help young people avert a life of
gangs, drug abuse and street violence, recently received
the University of Notre Dame’s Laetare Medal,
according to Catholic News Service. Father Boyle, 62, founder and executive director of Homeboy Industries, was honored during commencement ceremonies at the university May 21.
“For nearly 30 years, Father Boyle has served men and women who have been incarcerated and involved with gangs, and, in doing so, has helped them to discover the strength and hope necessary to transform their lives,” Holy Cross Father John I. Jenkins, university president, said in a statement.
“Father Boyle’s solidarity with our sisters and brothers at the margins of society offers an inspiring model of faith in action. We are grateful for the witness of his life and honored to bestow this award on him,” Father Jenkins added.
