CAMBRIDGE, Mass. » A Harvard University club says it has dropped sponsorship of a satanic ceremony that drew condemnation from the Archdiocese of Boston and the university's president.

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 event 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 event 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.
