Blessed Karl of Austria shrine to be installed in SC – October 20: We are happy to report that Prince of Peace parish in Taylors, SC will be installing a votive shrine to Bl. Karl on Sunday October 20. The installation will happen by the U.S. promoter for Bl. Karl’s canonization, Fr. Bonafice Hicks, OSB, and will occur at a Novus Ordo Mass (10am). Conveniently, the parish offers a Traditional Latin Mass at 12 noon that you can also attend if you choose. On Monday October 21 (his feast day in the Church), the parish will offer a 12 noon Traditional Latin Mass. One can venerate a 1st class relic of Bl. Karl after Mass. We share this as many CLMC members have a devotion to this saint.
