On Sunday, 21 April 2013, the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161 Traditional Latin Mass Guild hosted the 2nd annual Mass in honor of Blessed Emperor Karl of Austria at St. Titus Church in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania.

The Mass was offered by Fr. Gregory Plow, TOR, of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, Ohio.

The Relic of Blessed Karl was on the altar during Mass (visible just to the left of the missal, in the small gold reliquary) and was available for veneration after Mass.

Recall World War I began with assassination of Austrian Archduke Franz-Ferdinand and his wife Sophie on a Masonic contract. Its purpose was to trigger a war as means to destroy Europe's many monarchies. Emperor Karl was in concert with Pope Benedict XV to end this war, but was opposed by Grand Orient Freemasonry, the dedicated enemy of the Church.
