Hi, guys —

I have found many podcasts and articles in the last year or so that talk about the Church opening up to (non-Catholic/non-priest) consultants when it comes to more esoteric areas of study.

To put it bluntly, I am a secular exorcist and would like to know what the requirements are for this and how one should apply for it.

I don't know if you will have any answers for me, but I figured it was worth asking!

Thank you for your time and God Bless!

Dear NotACatholic B.S.A.M. —

These days, canon law requires that exorcists be Catholic priests, appointed by the bishop, and laymen are not appointed exorcists (even expert consultants) such as for example, Adam Blai.
