Who is Tom Burke?
Thomas F. Burke, Jr. has been a disciple and follower of Jesus Christ his entire life. He is a cradle Catholic. Tom grew up in Roxborough, Philadelphia for the first twenty-two years of his life with his father, mother and five siblings. After graduating with a mathematics degree from Dickinson College, he headed out from home and into the “real” world to teach mathematics to high school students. He has been teaching for the past thirty-two years.
Tom currently resides in Morrisville, Pennsylvania with Barb, his wife of twenty-nine years. They have four beautiful children – Christina, Sarah, Mary, Thomas – who are loved very much! Tom has been a parishioner of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Morrisville, Pennsylvania since 2001. Since becoming a member of St. John’s, Tom has been involved with a number of different ministries – Social Concerns Committee, Parish Pastoral Council, Youth Ministry, Knights of Columbus, and Faith Formation. Tom’s main focus within these ministries is helping others to learn more about Christianity and Catholicism, assisting others with developing a closer relationship with Jesus Christ, and reaching out to help others in order to make this world a better place for everyone.
The most important areas of Tom’s life include his family, faith, his self, and career. His hobbies and interests include spending time with family, teaching, learning about his faith, reading, writing, lifting weights and working out at the gym, reaching out and helping others at his church, in his community, and in different parts of the world.
