NECN --Instead of a Black Mass on Harvard University's campus Monday night, there were several prayerful protests of the now canceled on-campus Satanic Temple re-enactment.

"It took them how long to cancel it, I mean come on, only now when we're walking they cancel it, it's ridiculous," said Theresa Bidrin of Boston.

Hundreds took part in a Eucharistic procession from MIT's Chapel to St Paul Parish, and dozens took part in a rosary recitation at Harvard's Memorial Hall, where the Harvard Extension School's Cultural Studies Club had planned to hold the Black Mass.

"I think they're getting the message maybe that the world doesn't want this," Kevin Bailey of Westford, Massachusetts said.

The Harvard Cultural Studies group says the Satanic Temple group will stage its own black mass at "an undisclosed location."
