Donna Burke

Deacon 2017
Priest 2018

Donna felt the call at the age of 7 when she told her mother that she wanted to be a priest. A cradle Catholic, Donna  attended both a Catholic grammar school and Catholic high school. She is a recent graduate of Catholic Distance University where she attained an MA of Theology in Scripture Studies. Donna is currently a student at Andover Newton Theological School where she hopes to graduate with her MDiv degree in 2019. Her goal is to further her education through the completion of her DMin degree. Once ordained to the priesthood, Donna looks forward to hospice ministry with patients and family members of those who are nearing the end of their lives.  Donna grew up in Fall River, MA (home of Lizzie Borden) and has one brother and  three fantastic nephews. She currently resides in Amherst, NH with her partner, Sue, and their wonderful little puppy Malik (May – Lick) who is a 120 pound, long haired, German shepherd. Donna can be reached at
