Reverend Father Nikolaos Tambakis

Fr. Nikolaos was born on March 30, 1970 to Demetrios & Ekaterini Tambakis, who immigrated to Canada from the Prefecture of Argolida, Greece. Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, in the parish of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, Fr. Nikolaos is a proud Greek Canadian who has adopted both cultures in his heart.

In 1993 Fr. Nikolaos graduated from University of Winnipeg with a Bachelor of Arts, double-majoring in Administrative Studies and Psychology. Afterwards, he proceeded to enlist in the Hellenic Army and received an Honourable Discharge in 1995.

In 2000 Fr. Nikolaos married his wonderful wife, Presbytera Elizabeth. They have two great children, Dimitrios and Xenia.

Father Nik

In 2002 Fr. Nikolaos answered God's call and entered the Toronto Orthodox Theological Academy. In July 2004 he was ordained to the Holy Diaconate by His Eminence Metropolitan Sotirios in his home parish in Winnipeg; in August of the same year he was ordained to the Holy Priesthood by His Grace Bishop Christoforos at St. John the Theologian Chapel in Toronto, Ontario. Father served St. John the Theologian Chapel at the Holy Metropolis and Sts. Cyril and Methodius Chapel at the Hellenic Home for the Aged during his final year of studies. He graduated with a Bachelor of Theology from the Academy in 2005.

Since then, Father has been serving our parish here in Thunder Bay.
