Many thanks to the Reverend Lorne Manweiler who took some time from his current post as Rector of St. Timothy's in the Diocese of Edmonton to send a photo and some biographical info to diocesan communications. Rev. Manweiler was ordained into the Lutheran church in 2004, and received into the Anglican priesthood in 2018. Lorne has held assistant pastor, senior pastor, assistant priest, and rector positions in six Lutheran and Anglican parishes over his 17 years of ordained ministry.

Here is the text he sent to diocesan comms:

The Reverend Lorne Manweiler is Rector of St. Timothy’s Anglican Church, Edmonton, and Diocesan Canon for Worship and Liturgy for the Diocese of Edmonton.  Hailing from Vernon, BC and an alumnus of the University of British Columbia and Concordia Lutheran Seminary, he has served Lutheran and Anglican parishes in Medicine Hat, Calgary, Vulcan, Wetaskiwin, and Edmonton.  He has most recently served as instructor of organ and sessional professor of theology at Concordia University of Edmonton and Concordia Lutheran Seminary.  Rev. Manweiler is a sought-after international recitalist, clinician, facilitator, and lecturer in church music, liturgy, doctrine, and Christian identity.

Lorne is an avid spin class addict, coffee lover, bookworm, potluck casserole aficionado, and Trekkie.
