Larry Brixius reflects on 40 years in priesthood
At the tender age of 14, Larry Brixius decided he wanted to devote his life to the church.
"I told the priest before I told my parents," recalled Brixius, who grew up on the family farm near Wells, the oldest of six children. "He was coaching baseball, and we were on our way back from a game. I was the last one in his car, and I told him, 'I think I want to be a priest.'"
