Dianne Larson


Deacon Dianne Larson was a cradle Lutheran raised in Minnesota. After moving to Jacksonville, Florida,
she joined St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral. She trained as an acolyte, verger, small group leader, and held
positions in the Alpha program at St. John’s including director. Dianne heard the call to become a
Deacon while serving at the altar as an acolyte. While discerning the call she volunteered at Church
Without Walls and found her place in ministering to and being with the folks who find their home on the
street. To further her experience in the ministry of presence, Dianne enrolled in the Chaplaincy program,
clinical pastoral education (CPE), at Baptist Hospital in Jacksonville, FL. It was during CPE that her call to
the Diaconate was again confirmed.
In 2018 she entered the Diaconate training program with the Anglican Free Communion International
and completed the program in October 2019. She was ordained into the Diaconate on November 1,
2019. Connection and service are the words that she believes best define her role as a Deacon. Both
through liturgy and her work in the community she strives to connect the church to the community and
the community back to the church. Luke 22:27 describes her call to service, “But I am among you as one
who serves.”
Since her ordination to the Diaconate she has been very active in the communities of Keystone Heights
and Jacksonville, FL. She and a diverse group of people from the street and the Springfield neighborhood
started Communion on the porch. A Deacon’s Mass was held weekly for this group which grew into a
tight community of love, care, and support for each other.
Deacon Dianne has practiced Centering Prayer for many years and through that experience was
prompted to start a Lectio Divina group, which started in person, and because of the pandemic, moved
to Zoom. Today that group continues each Thursday at 11:30am. In addition, she has helped to start a
monthly in person Lectio group at St. Philip Neri in Jacksonville.
She has served the Keystone Community through volunteering at Mission of the Dirt Road. Lake Area
Ministries and represents Immanuel Anglican Church on the Keystone Safety Net Alliance and 100+
Women For Clay County. One of her great loves is visiting and sharing the Eucharist with parishioners
who are unable to attend church because of physical limitations.
Dianne is married to Allen Poucher. They have one daughter, Dorothy, who lives in NYC. Deacon Dianne
is an avid Gator Basketball and Football fan. She never misses a Vikings football game. Her favorite
pastime is sitting on the dock on Lake Goodrich, Minnesota meditating and communing with the Loons.
