Reverend Oz Lorentzen grew up in northern
Alberta. Since then, his spiritual and life
journey has taken him to B.C., Ontario and
New York state before his return to Alberta.
Oz’s ministry and vocational path is also
varied, ranging from work with Young
Offenders to being a College Professor.
These various experiences all contribute to
his ministry as a priest. With a passion for
the transforming power of the Good News of
Jesus Christ, Oz looks for ways to invite
others into this freeing, transforming
encounter with God.
Oz and family (wife and two boys) are glad
to call St. Barnabas and Medicine Hat home.
“Our desire is to be a part of God’s work as
He builds His Kingdom here. We look forward
to having you join us in this exciting
journey of life and faith.”
