The Reverend Stephen Tamke, Priest-in-Charge
Father Stephen Tamke, a graduate of Virginia Theological Seminary ('17), comes to us following three years as the Curate at St. John's of Lattingtown Church in Locust Valley. Prior, he served as deacon and seminarian at The Falls Church Episcopal in Falls Church, VA, just outside DC, during his time at seminary.
"I am excited to begin my ministry with the wonderful people of Christ Church! Growing up in the Diocese of Long Island, I've always heard about the great ministry that Christ Church, Manhasset, has been able to offer throughout its community. I'm looking forward to beginning my part as priest and pastor, and adding to the history of this wonderful and faithful community."
Father Stephen was born and raised in the Diocese of Long Island in Garden City, a parishioner of the Cathedral of the Incarnation where he was a member of the Cathedral Choir for many years. It was during his time singing in the Cathedral Choir that he began discerning his call to ordained ministry. While at VTS he served as
the Music Teaching Assistant with the Seminary's Professor of Church Music & Director of Chapel Music.
Father Stephen is the youngest of five sons of Jane & Steve Tamke. He is a die-hard Yankees fan, who, during the baseball season (whenever that might be this year) can be found watching or attending Yankees games. Father Stephen is very excited to be a member of Christ Church.
