Catholic Church Has a Shortage of Exorcists to Handle “People Possessed by Demons”
U.S. bishops are looking for a few good men to become exorcists.
In response to growing interest in the rite of exorcism and a shortage of trained exorcists nationwide, the bishops sponsored a two-day conference that just concluded. Interest was great, 56 bishops and 66 priests had signed up.
Church representative Bishop Thomas J. Paprocki believes there are only five or six exorcists in the U.S. and they are overwhelmed with requests to perform the rite.

1. I wonder what prompted the need for more...
exorcists, besides the obvious shortage of clergy?

I hadn't heard of any surge in cases of demonic possession...
