US bishops hold exorcism training prior to fall meeting

November 15, 2010

Washington D.C., (CNA).- The U.S. bishops are sponsoring a two-day exorcism training in order to teach more priests how to perform the rite.

The Conference on the Liturgical and Pastoral Practice of Exorcism is taking place Nov. 12 -13, days before the national bishops’ meeting in Baltimore.

Over 50 bishops and 60 priests have been registered for the event.

Speakers include Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, Fr. Dennis McManus – an assistant priest to New York Archbishop Timothy Dolan – and Chicago priest Fr. Jeffrey Grob.

Pro-life leader and author Fr. Thomas Euteneuer spoke with CNA last June and explained that due to an increased exposure of young people to the occult, priests within the next decade are going to be “inundated” with exorcism requests
