Father Gregory Boylenbsp;was ordainednbsp;a Jesuit priest in 1982.nbsp;Henbsp;received his Master of Divinity from the Weston School of Theology; and a Sacred Theology Masters degree from the Jesuit School of Theology. In 1988, Father Boyle began what would become Homeboy Industries, now located in downtown Los Angeles. Fr. Greg received the California Peace Prize, the ?Humanitarian of the Year? Award fromBon App - tit; the Caring Institute's 2007 Most Caring People Award; andnbsp;received the 2008 Civic Medal of Honor from the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce.nbsp;Since 1986, Father Gregory has been the pastor of Dolores Mission in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles.nbsp;The church sits between two large public housing projects, Pico Gardens and Aliso Village, knownnbsp;for decades as the gang capital of the world.nbsp;There are 1,100 gangsnbsp;encompassing 86,000 members in Los Angeles, and Boyle Heights has the highest concentration of murderous gang activity in the city. Sincenbsp;Father Greg—also known affectionately as G-dog, started Homeboy Industries nearly twenty years ago, it has served members of more than half of the gangs in Los Angeles. In Homeboy Industries' various businesses—baking, silkscreening, landscaping—gang affiliations are left outside as young people work together, side by side, learning the mutual respect that comes from building something together.
