“No matter where God has planted you, hope. Always hope.” Pope Francis

#hope is a highly dynamic and engaging event for student leaders, school captains, prefects, and social justice committees that combines input, discussion, story, ritual, multimedia, the arts and facilitated Q&A.

Fr Greg, along with our team of justice innovators, will inspire your students to be missionary disciples in a contemporary society. Drawing on real-world examples, #hope will give your students access to:

  • practical and engaging faith formation
  • innovative and effective tools for animating social action and justice
  • modern resources to support student-initiated projects
  • networking with other like-minded young people

Don’t let your students miss this extraordinary encounter with Fr Greg who will share his passion: compassion.

“Compassion isn’t just about feeling the pain of others; it’s about bringing them in toward yourself.” - Fr Greg Boyle SJ

Father Greg Boyle SJ, is the founder of HomeBoy Industries in Los Angeles, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation and re-entry program in the world. Today, HomeBoy Industries employs and trains former gang members in a range of social enterprises, as well as providing critical services to 15,000 men and women who walk through its doors every year seeking a better life.

“Hope is an essential thing,” says Father Greg. “Gangs are the places kids go when they discover their life to be a misery”.

Going beyond the escalating problems of gang-involved youth, Greg did what he knew Jesus would do... he treated them as human beings.

Celebrated for his incredible witness in today’s world, Father Greg was named by former American President Barack Obama as a Champion of Change. Greg has also been awarded the Californian Peace Prize and was inducted into the California Hall of Fame.

“Our job isn’t to fix or rescue or to save. It’s to accompany, see people, listen to them”.

- Father Greg Boyle SJ
