– Catholic Archbishop Paul Coakley, head of the archdiocese of Oklahoma City, condemned a scheduled Black Mass by a satanic group, for which tickets are being sold at the Oklahoma City Civic Center, as “sacrilegious,” a “blasphemous mockery of the Mass.”

The archbishop also called upon community leaders and board members of the Oklahoma City Civic Center to “remedy this situation,” stressing that he hoped they did not want to “enable or encourage such a flagrantly inflammatory event.”

 

The Black Mass of Oklahoma, being offered by the group Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, is scheduled to take place in the Civic Center Music Hall on Sept. 21 at 7PM. Tickets are $15.00.

In the description for the event, the ticket office says, “The Black Mass has been a feared ritual, and now it’s being brought into the light! This will not only be enlightening but educational as well. This Black Mass will be conducted for the public to attend with certain adaptations to allow for a legal celebration.”
