The Rev. Tami Burks, Interim Rector
Tami was ordained to the priesthood in the Diocese of New York in October, 2016. Born and raised a Lutheran, she was received into the Episcopal Church in 2007. Before discerning a call to the priesthood, she was a teacher and director of Christian education in a variety of schools and churches in Pennsylvania and New York. She is passionate about offering Christian formation, preaching, and worship that equip parishioners to go out and be Christ’s hands and heart in this world.
She loves that St. Thomas’ mission statement professes its welcome to all “seekers, searchers, and doubters”, because she ventures that all of us can find ourselves in one of those categories at any given time.
Tami has been active in the Mamaroneck community in a variety of ways over the past 20 years. She currently serves on the board of the Larchmont/Mamaroneck Local Summit and is a member of the Coalition for Community. She is also a diocesan facilitator and sits on the board of the Metropolitan Japanese Ministry.
She enjoys hiking, journaling, geocaching and playing board games and admits to being ridiculously competitive at the latter.
Tami has three sons – Alexander who lives in Geneseo, NY and is a middle school science teacher; William who lives in Mamaroneck and works as a kindergarten pod teacher, and Ian who is a freshman at Binghamton University.
