Small Parish, Giant Heart: The Profound Impact of Dolores Mission

Dolores Mission Parish in the Boyle Heights community of Los Angeles is probably best known as the place where Fr. Gregory Boyle, SJ, began Homeboy Industries. The small Jesuit parish, however, has been doing more for the past 30 years than reaching out to people in gangs. The parish's unofficial motto is: "Just start.”

This feature story by Dan Morris-Young of National Catholic Reporter takes an in depth look at the parish, its school, its church, and many ministries that serve the people of this challenged area of Los Angeles. Be sure to watch the video near the end of the story for parish staff messages to Pope Francis.
