Recipient of the
2021 Saint Luke Award
Rev. Msgr. John J. Enzler, President and CEO Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of Washington
Rev. Msgr. John J. Enzler, President and CEO of Catholic Charities, Archdiocese of Washington, will be honored with the Saint Luke Award for his steadfast service to the poor and those most in need.
Born and raised in Washington, DC, Monsignor Enzler, who prefers to be called Father John, is a graduate of Our Lady of Lourdes School in Bethesda, MD, St. John’s College High School in Washington, DC, and Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, MD. In addition to his mission with Catholic Charities, Washingtonians know him as a champion of good causes, beloved parish priest, board member of Don Bosco Cristo Rey High School, and 2012 Washingtonian of the Year. He sits on close to 20 boards, has served as priest at three parishes in his career, and received over 15 prestigious community and educational awards.
The Saint Luke Award is given annually to someone whose professional life or charitable works embody the ideals of the Institute: the rebuilding of the spiritual, physical, emotional, and intellectual life of those in need.
In undertaking these tasks, the honoree is motivated by the gospel ideals of compassion, charity and a belief that all persons are brothers and sisters in Christ. The award is bestowed each year on or around the October 18 Feast of St. Luke.
