Mark has a deep love for his Catholic faith. He and his family are parishioners of Mary Our Queen Catholic Church in Omaha, where all of his children also attended elementary and middle school. Over the years, Mark and his wife have volunteered in various roles at Mary Our Queen including EMHC, youth sports coach, fish fries, creators of Mustang March (the schools main fundraiser), and building/grounds/gardens.
