Mark was ordained as a deacon for the Archdiocese of New Orleans in 2006, following in the footsteps of his father.  In 2007, he left his job as CEO of WLAE-TV, the New Orleans public television station, to work full time for the Abbey as the director of their Christian Life Center.  He also returned to his lifelong love of woodworking and began to build caskets in the monastery woodshop.
