A Message From Pastor George W. Dietrich
Greetings in the name of our creator,
I am grateful for your interest in Hamptons Lutheran Parish. The congregations, communities, and individuals that make up Hamptons Lutheran Parish inspire me daily. I invite you to join us for worship, fellowship, any of our educational programs, or ministries. There is always something happening — yes, always! Even in the East End’s “off-season,” there is activity and love abounding at Incarnation and St. Michael’s. If you have questions about who we are, what we believe, or are looking for someone to talk to, please do not hesitate to e-mail me.

In peace and love,
Incarnation Council President: Benjamin Antinori
“I was born in Hot Springs, Arkansas, 1944, as the next-to-the-youngest of 7 siblings. Our family moved to Northern California following the end of WWII. I grew up and received my primary and secondary education in Yuba City, California, a rural, agricultural community in the Sacramento Valley. I earned my undergraduate and graduate degrees in Southern California at the University-Riverside. From 1968 – 2007, I worked in social services in California, Oregon and New York. In 2007, I retired after many years in various NYC programs. I was privileged to be an original member of the City’s first HIV-AIDS services program at the outset of the epidemic early in the 1980s. At the time of my retirement, I was serving as the Assistant Deputy Commissioner of Adult Protective Services (for mentally and physically at-risk adults in all five City boroughs). From 2007-2013, I volunteered with Southampton Town Senior Services. In 2009, I was honored by Suffolk County as Senior of the Year. Like my career, my faith journey has been a long and diverse one. Yet, it is a relentless testimony to God’s love, grace and forgiveness. I met my spouse and best-friend, Bill Ciampa, in 1980. We are presently enjoying our retirement in our home in Hampton Bays, which we have owned since 2003. We were married at Incarnation in December, 2013, and I became a member in 2014. We are blessed to be part of this Reconciling In Christ congregation and the Hamptons Lutheran Parish.”
