Named after Catholic Charities’ President and CEO, Msgr. John J. Enzler, the Enzler Society is a group of young individuals, ages 21-35 years old, who are dedicated to raising awareness about Catholic Charities’ mission and vital work as the most comprehensive and wide-reaching non-profit social services agency in the Washington, D.C., region through volunteer services and community networking.
What We Do
Our mission is to engage and encourage young professionals to make a positive impact on the lives of those who are vulnerable or living in poverty. We also serve as a resource for service-oriented professionals in an effort to network, grow and support the work of Catholic Charities.
As a society, we primarily volunteer with Mulumba House, which provides permanent supportive housing in the central Shaw neighborhood of D.C. for participants in the Welcome Home Reentry Program. On Friday afternoons and on weekends, we engage with residents, playing board games, watching football games and serving as a resource in whatever way we can.
Throughout the year, we also host donation drives, Christmas and Easter parties with Mulumba House residents, and host quarterly networking events for our members.
Our chaplain is Father Mark Ivany, who provides spiritual guidance and support to the group.
The Enzler Society is always looking for new members-at-large to join our organization. Members also have the option of filling chair positions within the leadership committee throughout the year.
