“I want my children and future generations to have good priests in their lives,” actorMark Wahlberg says in a new video, “just like I had.” The video was addressed to the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors in Boston and was posted online on the Facebook page for the Diocese of Providence Office of Vocations. Wahlberg has starred in blockbusters such as Transformers: Age of Extinction, Invincible, and The Italian Job. “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.” He then explained all the ways priests have helped him in his life.
