Do you think you are experiencing a "haunting" or you are having strange, unexplainable things go on that leave you anxious, fearful or extremely unsettled? We conduct investigations into paranormal activity from a scientific, yet Christian perspective (Roman Catholic). No, the two are NOT mutually exclusive! We specialize in negative hauntings, especially demonic cases or cases suspected of being caused by malevolent spirits (most are not). When necessary, we help arrange blessings and prayers for those who need it. We follow the Code of Canon Law (c. 1172) and the Norms promulgated by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in ALL of our cases. No, you do not need to be Roman Catholic to receive our help.
We also work with "psychic children" and cases where children are seeing spirits and are sometimes very troubled and frightened by it. We also are very experienced in helping other paranormal team members who have developed an attachment, for one reason or another.
We offer the best scientific approaches and technology available and look for natural causes first. At the same time, we provide spiritual direction and catechesis (teaching) that helps people to understand the realities of the world we live in. We are a non-profit corporation, and we do not charge for our services if we accept your case. We can help! We have come alongside individuals and families right here in our home towns of Natchez, Mississippi & Vidalia, Louisiana...regionally all over Mississippi and Louisiana...to as far away as Indiana, New York, California, and even overseas countries such as England and Finland.

NOTE: We reach a conclusion or diagnosis in a case only after a careful, diligent, thorough investigation and processing our guidelines and protocol methodologies. We approach all cases that have the potential to possibly be diabolic in nature by strictly following the Code of Cannon Law of the Roman Catholic Church. MOST cases are NOT diabolical to begin with, and even if so, only rise to a level of infestation, harassment, oppression or obsession. Possession is extremely rare. The Vatican estimates that only 1 out of every 5,000 cases they investigate turns out to be a genuine case of possession. Most of the time the cases we investigate are caused by, are a result of, or a combination of: an over-active imagination; fraud or deception; suggestion or auto-suggestion; embellishment or exaggeration; psychological issues or disorders; or a human spirit lingering. Occasionally however, cases do turn out to be serious and of an evil nature. We are a team of older, mature professionals who take this work seriously and with caring for those we help foremost in our minds.
