The Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club said Monday a Cambridge restaurant and nightclub would not host the black Mass as planned. It says no other location offered a site.
The Harvard group says organizer Satanic Temple will stage its own ceremony at an undisclosed location.
Harvard President Drew Faust says in a message on the university's website the satanic Mass is "flagrantly disrespectful and inflammatory." She says she plans to attend a Eucharistic holy hour and benediction on the Harvard campus.
The Archdiocese of Boston last week said the black Mass mocks the Catholic Mass.
