Meet Our Staff

 

The Rev. Lacy Largent

Parish Priest

Lacy became the Priest here at St. Francis on January 1st of 2018.  The congregation was quite pleased, as Lacy was not unknown to the people of St. Francis, having served here during a transition period from 2003-2005, and served from time to time as a substitute priest when needed.  Lacy has loved the people of St. Francis and the gifts of this congregation for many years. Lacy spends 75% of her ministry time here in the Bryan/College Station area.


To round out her full-time ministry, Lacy also serves as Spiritual Director of Camp Allen near Navasota, and the Priest at the Church of the Redeemer in Houston which meets late on Sunday afternoons.


Prior to coming to St. Francis, Lacy was a Port Chaplain at the Seafarers’ Ministry at the Port of Houston for almost 16 years.  She left this ministry to serve as the Spiritual Care Team Coordinator for the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in the wake of the Hurricane Harvey disaster.


Since her ordination in 1990, Lacy has also served as a Staff Chaplain at St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital, Assistant Rector at Good Shepherd in Kingwood, and Rector of St. Paul’s in Navasota.  Prior to her ordination to the priesthood, she worked as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.


Educationally, Lacy holds a B.A. in Social Welfare from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, a M.S.W. (Master of Social Work) from Washington University in St. Louis, and a M.Div. (Master of Divinity) from the Seminary of the Southwest in Austin.  She is also a Certified Daring Way Facilitator using the teachings of Brené Brown.
