Mark Weber, right, greets Cretin-Derham Hall senior Anna Burke, as junior Roxanna Lozoya, left, senior Sam Esch and junior Alisha Engelbrekt await their turn March 6 following Weber’s talk at the school. Weber, who graduated from the school in 1989 and is 41, served in the U.S. Army for more than 20 years, and was diagnosed with stage IV intestinal cancer in 2010. Saying he doesn’t have much longer to live, he wanted to address the students, teachers and staff at his alma mater. “Faith has played a significant role” in his journey through the illness, he said in an email interview with The Catholic Spirit. “God is, as advertised, with and for me every step of the way.” Weber and his wife Kristin have three sons.
