Report: Seventh Annual Battle of Lepanto Mass & Dinner

On Tuesday, 7 October 2014, the Knights of Columbus Woodlawn Council 2161 Traditional Latin Mass Guild hosted a Solemn High Mass at St. Titus Church, Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, to celebrate the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. This was the first traditional Solemn High Mass offered at St. Titus Church in over 49 years.
The celebrant was Canon Andrew Todd of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. Canon Todd was ordained on 5 August 2014, in St. Louis by Raymond Cardinal Burke.
Music for the Mass was provided by the Duquesne University Schola Cantorum Gregorianum under the direction of Sister Marie Agatha Ozah, HHCJ, Dr. Ann Labounsky organist.
A Knights of Columbus honor guard was provided by members of the Fr. Baron Assembly 0939, Crafton, PA.
After Mass, at the Seventh Annual Battle of Lepanto Dinner, John Vennari, Editor of Catholic Family News, gave a talk entitled "From Lepanto to Fatima: The Rosary is Our Victory."
Fred Goldbach, of the Pittsburgh Latin Mass Community, Inc., presented a check in the amount of $1,000 from the PLMC to Canon Todd for the support of the Institute's seminary.
In addition to celebrating the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary and commemorating the Battle of Lepanto, this annual event serves as a fundraiser for Woodlawn Council's seminary scholarship grant program. Woodlawn Council raised $500 that will be awarded to a seminarian of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest later this year.
