Radical Kinship

August 6, 2023 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Today’s Topic

The traditional notion of kinship is challenging, because it boxes us in with people who may not share mutual love and respect. What happens when we open the box and include kin who are beyond our family of origin? Father Greg Boyle, S.J., founder of Homeboys Industries in Los Angeles said, “Radical kinship is the only thing that mattered to Jesus. We are one, and we belong to each other.” Join us this Sunday as we explore kinship beyond our biological roots.

It is located 3 blocks west of the church, on Van Buren near Knapp St. Kingshead lot: On Sundays we can also use the gated parking lot on the corner of Van Buren and Knapp Streets.
