LA City Council proclaims Father Greg Boyle Day

After already being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom at the White House by President Joe Biden on May 3, Father Greg Boyle — the founder and director of Los Angeles-based Homeboy Industries — received another honor: the Los Angeles City Council named May 19 as Father Greg Boyle Day. May 19 is also Boyle’s birthday.

During its meeting on May 17, the council recognized Boyle for his decades of community work and for helping to transform thousands of lives.

“For decades, Father Boyle has committed his life to serving others in Los Angeles,” said Los Angeles City Councilmember Eunisses Hernandez. “Whether it was door-knocking in the Pico-Aliso projects, marching alongside the señoras of the Boyle Heights community, building a place for refuge for immigrants seeking a safe place to sleep, Father Boyle has been dedicated to the cause of uplifting those who are often left behind in our society.”
