The founder of Homeboy Industries, a gang-intervention program in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles, will give a public lecture Thursday at Newman University.

Father Gregory Boyle will speak on The Power of Boundless Compassion at 7 p.m. in the Performance Hall. The lecture is free.

Father Boyle has written a best-selling book, “Tattoos on the Heart: The Power of Boundless Compassion,” describing his experience working in the ghetto where he used his faith to guide others. The book will be available to buy at the event.

The lecture is sponsored by the Gerber Institute for Catholic Studies as part of its 2013-14 focus on the theme of race and reconciliation.
