'Walk with Francis Pledge' urges Washingtonians to do a good deed ahead of papal trip

 | 

Standing beside a statue called "Homeless Jesus," Msgr. John Enzler pledged to spend a night with the city's homeless before Pope Francis' visit in September.

Enzler, who is president of Catholic Charities, made the vow as part of Wednesday's launch of the "Walk with Francis Pledge," a campaign by the Washington archdiocese and Catholic Charities to get 100,000 people to take on a good deed in preparation for the pope's visit.
