President Trump just introduced to the nation his nominee for the next justice on the U.S. Supreme CourtBrett Kavanaugh. Judge Kavanaugh then introduced the nation to someone perhaps a bit unexpected: Monsignor John Enzler. In a short and poignant speech that revealed Judge Kavanaugh’s biggest priorities, faith and family, he highlighted his mother and father, his wife and children, and the president and CEO of Catholic Charities D.C.

“I am part of the vibrant Catholic community in the D.C. area,” he said. “The members of that community disagree about many things, but we are united by a commitment to serve. Father John Enzler is here. Forty years ago, I was an altar boy for Father John. These days, I help him serve meals to the homeless at Catholic Charities.”

Judge Kavanaugh didn’t just highlight his faith, he got right to what his faith is truly about — service to others. And perhaps no other Catholic organization exemplifies that better than Catholic Charities. The local and national impact of Catholic Charities is staggering. Last year more than 6,800 men and women volunteered for Catholic Charities D.C. alongside Judge Kavanaugh. Regarded as the largest independent social service agency in the Washington, D.C., area, Catholic Charities D.C. estimates serving more than 142,000 men, women and children in and around the nation’s capital alone.
