Billiart Center | Msgr. Enzler Speaks on the Justice Mission of Catholic Charities

“Catholic Charities helps more than 120,000 people in the Washington-metropolitan region each year”


The Billiart Center at Trinity welcomed Monsignor John Enzler to campus on October 9, 2018, for a talk on the mission of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington and the organization’s commitment to economic and social justice. He talked about the tenets of Catholic social teaching and the many ways that Catholic Charities serves thousands of people each year with health care, shelter and much more.

Photo of Msgr EnzlerMonsignor John Enzler, affectionately known as Father John, is the president and CEO of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington, an agency which annually helps more than 120,000 people in the Washington-metropolitan region. A native Washingtonian, Father John has more than 40 years of experience as a priest, leader and advocate serving the needs of the most vulnerable in our community. His commitment to the poor and underserved extends beyond his work for Catholic Charities to include service on the boards of many national and local organizations such as Providence Hospital, Order of Malta, Christ Child Society and Mount St. Mary’s University among many others. He has been active among several local interfaith networks and is a recognized and respected figure in the metropolitan area community.

He was ordained a priest for the Archdiocese of Washington in 1973 and was named Monsignor by Pope John Paul II in 1985. Prior to being appointed to lead Catholic Charities by Cardinal Donald Wuerl in July 2011, he served as pastor at three parishes, most recently at the Shrine of the Most Blessed Sacrament in Washington, DC. In 2012, Washingtonian Magazine named him a “Washingtonian of the Year.” On September 24, 2015, Father John welcomed Pope Francis to meet with and be among more than 500 people who were being helped by Catholic Charities, an iconic moment in the agency’s history.
