A Harvard University student group plans to hold a re-enactment of a satanic ritual on the school’s historic campus, drawing criticism from local Roman Catholic officials, who expressed “deep sadness and strong opposition” to the plan.
The Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club said in a statement posted online that it plans to host “a historical re-enactment of a black mass ceremony that has a narrator providing historical context and background.”
