The luncheon featured a talk by the father/son team Stan and Landry Weber. Stan is the color analyst for the K-State radio network, while Landry, a former Kansas State player, is entering the seminary this fall.

Landry Weber, one of 10 new seminarians for the archdiocese, did a joint witness talk alongside his father Stan, highlighting their father/son relationship and how that formed his faith and led him to discern a vocation to the priesthood. LEAVEN PHOTO BY JAY SOLDNER

The two discussed their relationship and how it led Landry to discern a vocation.
