A "fixture" in the front side pew at 8 am Mass on Sunday at the Cathedral of St. Peter. A flag will fly on Memorial Day 2023 in honor of Marc, a U.S. Air Force veteran.

Uncle Mark was the most pure and humble souls I have ever met. He was a true man of god and have no doubt that he sits with him now.
