About 40 people attended, while earlier outside hundreds of Christians surrounded the Civic Center in protest. Many took buses from Kansas.

"Shocking to think that they worship the devil instead of god," said protester, Estefani Martinez.

But there was also a group in support of the Black Mass.

“Well it's freedom of religion in America right? We're all free to do what we want," said one supporter.

Daniels said one goal of the mass was to destroy the fear of the Catholic Church by mocking the items they use.

As of 10 pm. the Black Mass was actually still going on. News 9 is told an exorcism was about to take place.
