Connecting with Compassion

At Burke, we recognize that we have been given the gift of compassion. God calls us to be compassionate in how we engage one another and ourselves. At Burke, we seek to offer ways to care with support, welcome, fellowship, and good health!

The Holy Week in Art: Tuesday, April 4 at 7 pm


Artists from the beginnings of Christianity have been inspired by the events of Holy Week. They used many different approaches to illustrate the sequence from Christ’s entry into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday through the resurrection on Easter Sunday. Roz Hoagland will use works from Early Christians through the 20th century to tell the story of this most important week in the life of all Christians. A light supper will be provided. Please sign up HERE - spots are limited!

Flowers bring a smile to all! Drivers are needed to deliver the Sunday altar flowers. Some weeks our altar flower arrangements go home with the people who donated them, but other weeks they get delivered to people who could use a little bit of extra beauty in their lives. Able to be on call to drive flowers to a neighbor once in a while? Let Pat Warner know at or 703-646-5474 and she'll send you more info!
