The Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art (PhilaMOCA) in Philadelphia is holding two sold-out performances of a live Black Mass ritual by The Satanic Temple on October 12th. The ritual will be followed by a screening of the 1922 silent horror feature HAXAN with a live score by the Temple’s Lucien Greaves and Shiva Honey.
In response, the recently established Saint Mary Quasi Parish in Conshohocken is holding a holy hour of reparation from 5:30 p.m. to 6:15 p.m., which will be followed at 6:30 p.m. with a votive Mass “for the Propagation of the Faith” with the votive prayers for “the Forgiveness of Sins.” A “votive Mass” is a Mass said for a special purpose.
We learned about this from the Tweet below:
Will be at St. Mary’s in Conshy, yes. My guess is that they are intentionally keeping a low profile on the mass so as not to give more publicity to the Satanic Event (which is what the organizers want, probably). Here’s the notice from the bulletin pic.twitter.com/2nYYZuCBX8
