TUCSON, Ariz. — Typically, more mainstream religious groups lead invocations at town council meetings, but in 2019, the town of Sahuarita is shaking things things up.

First reported by Sahuarita Sun , the Satanic Temple of Arizona is going to give the invocation at the Sept. 9, 2019 Sahuarita Town Council meeting, the city confirmed Monday morning.

An invocation is a short speech or prayer at the beginning of a council meeting, typically by a religious leader or group.

The Satanic Temple is a nontheistic religious and political activist group formed in 2012, and is separate from the church of Satan.
