Fr. Lucas Rice is a 2011 graduate of St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary in Crestwood, NY. He began his ministry at St. Thomas in August of that year. His ministry–and his sanity–is greatly aided by his long-suffering wife, Khouriya Nicole. They make their home with their two young sons: Theodore (“Teddy”) and Gideon (“Giddy”) and two very stubborn Scottish Terriers.
Fr. Lucas is a passionate student of history and of the Church Fathers. In addition to reading, he enjoys music–both playing and listening, podcasts, and DIY projects. He has even been known to ride a motorcycle every now and then.
He would love nothing more than to tell you about the Gospel of Jesus and the Pearl of Holy Orthodoxy. You may contact him at FrLucas@Stthomassiouxcity.org
