As Italy has experienced a massive explosion in demand for exorcisms, an independent organization offers demon-busting services in 24 countries that can be ordered online.
The Order of Exorcists has an easily accessible “Contact Us” form to request an investigation and an exorcism.
The family or person needing help – please make the request via our “Contact Us” form on this page. Please include all the details about the situation including the names of people within the household, what kind of help they are looking for, and complete contact information.
The order undergoes an extensive multi-week process to ensure that demon possession or paranormal activity is involved, and then to perform the exorcism.
Once the information is received we will start the process by contacting our members in that area where they would form an “Investigation & Assessment Team.” This would be the first stage of the process which can take about two or three weeks. Then one of our team members would make “first contact” and set a date for the Investigation & Assessment. Our team will collect all evidence, including documentation such as photos, videos, medical and psychological reports. One of our exorcist clergy members is a medical doctor. He would review the medical reports and submit his findings and recommendation to the Chief Exorcist. This would be the second stage of the process which can take up to a month. If the evidence shows an exorcism is needed, a priest would be assigned for the exorcism.
This exorcism request form provides an easy way for those who suspect they may be suffering from demon possession or other paranormal activity to find help.
Last month, a Sicilian friar reported that Italy alone has seen a threefold increase in demand for exorcisms in recent years. Friar Beningo Palilla told Vatican Radiothere are roughly 500,000 cases requiring exorcism in Italy each year. The Vatican is struggling to address this demand.
Palilla, a priest in Palermo, attributed this increase to a growing number of people seeking fortune tellers and Tarot readers. These paranormal activities “open the door to the devil and to possession,” he argued. Many cases are not actually related to demonic possession, but Palilla still called for investigation into spiritual and psychological problems that may be paranormal.
He called for an across-the-board improvement in training. “We priests, very often, do not know how to deal with the concrete cases presented to us: in preparation for the priesthood, we do not talk about these things,” Palilla admitted. Even so, “a self-taught exorcist certainly meets errors.”
He suggested “a period of apprenticeship, as happens for many professionals.”
The Catholic Church’s canon law recognizes exorcism, but only when performed with high-level permission from within the church. In 2014, the Vatican backed the International Association of Exorcists, which was founded in 1990 and has licensed about 200 members on six continents.
The Vatican will launch a weeklong international course in April at the Pontifical Athenaeum Regina Apostolorum.
Even so, the International Association of Exorcists does not have a request form on its website.
The Order of Exorcists is not affiliated with the Vatican, however. It began in 1980 as Saint Michaels Catholic Parish, “a small Independent Traditional ‘Old’ Roman Catholic Parish, located in Highland Park, California,” the website explains. The church started to receive exorcism requests outside the immediate area, and in 1981 established a separate full-time exorcism ministry called “The Sacred Order of Saint Michael the Archangel — Order of Exorcists.”
“Archbishop Ron Feyl and The Sacred Order of Saint Michael the Archangel-Order of Exorcists is NOT under the Vatican,” the site explains (emphasis original). “It is an autonomous and independent branch of the Catholic faith which derives from the ancient Old Roman Catholic Church of the 12th Century.”
The original church, and the exorcism order established under it, reject the current leadership and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. The Vatican will not ally with this organization, even though its online platform seems to have a more accessible form to request exorcisms.
