We are a Roman Catholic Church, part of the Archdiocese of Washington D.C. and under its presiding Archbishop, serving together as the body of believers under One Lord Jesus. Our parish was founded in the 1980’s and its history is given via the stories of parish pastors. This is our Mission Statement:
We, the parishioners of the Church of the Resurrection, strive to be a welcoming Christian Community as we come together to share in the Eucharist. Strengthened by our bond to Christ and one another, we accept the challenge to bring about the unity to which we are called by reaching out to others and offering them an experience of Faith, Hope, and Love. In this way, we proclaim the Kingdom of God.
To set us apart from churches, Catholic or other who happen to have the same name in the area, we are Resurrection Catholic Parish: Burtonsville. The True Presence of Christ in Eucharist is at the core of our parish, and our central activity.
We have daily Mass at 9:00 am. Monday through Friday. We also have Mass on Wednesdays at 3:00 pm. at the chapel of Riderwood Retirement Community. We have Sunday Morning Masses at 7:30 am, 10:00 am and at 12:30 pm, and a Saturday Vigil Mass at 4:00 pm. We also provide two Sunday Masses (9:00 am and 2:00 pm) at the chapel of Riderwood Retirement Community in Calverton. Call the parish secretary for details (301-236-5202). The parish bulletin is online, and it provides email or phone contacts for most of the staff.
Church access and location
One can pray in quiet in the church via access through the office, if the front doors are closed.
The Church is located at the intersection of Old Columbia Pike and Greencastle Rd. It is a half-mile to the west of Rt. 29 at the Greencastle Rd. traffic light, which is situated between the stretch of Rt. 200 or Briggs Chaney Rd. (to our south) and Rt. 198 (to the north). These roads make it a quick drive from many places to reach us. Resurrection Church has a large capacity and plenty of parking. A large family room (“cry room’) is available, so parents can participate in the liturgy while taking care of toddlers and babies, as needed. The church and the offices are wheelchair friendly.
