Walking beside his wife of 11 years, Rhea, who wore a powder blue dress and a pair of lilac heels, and his two sons Michael, 14, and Brendan, 12, the family looked very sharp for the outing. 

With his keys in hand, Wahlberg flashed a wave for the camera before heading to an outdoor church gathering.  

According to Los Angeles COVID-19 protocol, religious gatherings are allowed but indoor services are completely prohibited as the United States reaches 12M active cases of the deadly virus as of Saturday.

Speaking about his faith in a 2013 Parade magazine interview Wahlberg said, ‘I don’t try to push it on anybody and I don’t try to hide it.’

Adhering to a strict schedule that includes waking up at 2:30am for a workout, Mark said that he and his family usually attend services twice on Sunday. 

‘I’ll go to church at 7:30 and everybody will be eating breakfast when I come home. Then we’ll go to church again at 10:30, if things aren’t too hectic. Or if one of the kids has a game we’ll watch them play. It’s a nice family day.’
