After two successful years, South Pasadena will hold its third annual Prayer Breakfast, “Empowering Youth” on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 at Oneonta Congregational Church. Tickets are now on sale at www.sopasprayerbreakfast.org.
Father Greg Boyle was ordained as a Jesuit Priest in 1984. In 1988, Boyle began what would become Homeboy Industries, now located in downtown Los Angeles. He’s received the California Peace Prize, the Humanitarian of the Year Award from Bon Appetit, the 2008 Civic Medal of Honor from the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce and was inducted in to the California Hall of Fame. His newest book, Barking to the Choir, The Power of Radical Kinship, invites the reader to find kinship with one another and get a glimpse at a world defined by more compassion and fewer barriers. Father Boyle is also the author of Tattoos on the Heart. He is an inspiring speaker and communicates with honesty, wit and compassion.
“We are thrilled and honored to have Father Boyle with us, and excited to see the breakfast taking shape. We invite the entire community to attend,” said Rev. Lincoln Skinner, President of the South Pasadena Prayer Breakfast. “Our focus will be on EMPOWERING YOUTH as we connect, care and cooperate through prayer and service.”
The breakfast rotates amongst South Pasadena community churches and this year the 7:00 a.m. event will be held at Oneonta Congregational Church, located at 1515 Garfield Avenue in South Pasadena. The event is funded entirely by private donations and ticket sales. Our 2016 and 2017 events raised a total of $9,000.00 to facilitate disaster preparedness and to serve those in need.
Tickets are available for $30 each. Visit www.sopasprayerbreakfast.org for tickets and to learn about sponsorship opportunities.
