Dear Father | Belief in the paranormal is no substitute for true religion


What is the Church’s teaching on the paranormal? Do ghosts or other spirits exist?

Msgr. Matthew Mitas' answer:

When you speak of the "paranormal," you're using an umbrella term that covers many things, including occultism, divination, necromancy, spiritism, Satanism, fetishism, theosophy and outright witchcraft, all of which the Church condemns as either fraudulent or destructive of the soul.
