Wahlberg has been very outspoken about his faith of late. On Ash Wednesday, he and Rhea posted selfies with ashes dark upon their brows and recently, Mark made an appeal for more priestly vocations, stating:

“I want my children and future generations to have good priests in their lives just like I had.” He continued, “My Catholic faith is the anchor that supports everything I do in life,” Wahlberg continued, “my daily prayers, I ask for guidance and strength in my vocation, and as a husband and as a father.”

Special day.......✝️💜

Just a few weeks ago Rhea shared photos of Grace’s first Reconciliation with her followers.

Mark Wahlberg was raised Catholic, while Rhea converted shortly before their wedding, in 2009. They have four children, two boys and two girls, who they are determined to raise with a strong Catholic identity.
