Fr. Bob Bailey


I am a native of Cranston, Rhode Island and am a Roman Catholic priest and pastor of St. Maria Goretti Parish in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.  I was ordained to the priesthood for the Diocese of Providence in 1993.  Since then, I have served as assistant pastor in several parishes around the state until being named pastor in Pawtucket.  Besides tending to my flock at St. Maria Goretti Parish, I am also Chaplain to the Smithfield Fire Dept. and Spiritual Director for the World Apostolate of Fatima.  Since last Pentecost, Fr. Bob has also began a monthly healing Mass on the first of Monday of each month .

Having a interest in the paranormal since childhood, I began to feel a calling to assist those in the area of paranormal research with my priesthood.  I felt that the Church and the Catholic Faith could bring some ages-old wisdom and spiritual authority to the table in the area of the demonic. I have been well received with gratitude and eagerness since I have stepped out in this area (with the permission of my Bishop).

My friendship with Ryan Buell of PRS and my work with him on various Paranormal State episodes has given me both experience and exposure along with credibility in the paranormal field.  I have also been contacted by some paranormal groups in the local area for spiritual assistance. Because of this, I have had numerous requests in my local area by both individuals as well as paranormal investigators for assistance.  The need became such that I founded this group to be at the service of investigators and individuals who may encounter negative or demonic forces.  Not every investigator/ group may feel that they are equipped to handle these manifestations and indeed should not attempt to deal with it without a deep faith, knowledge and spiritual authority (calling) in this field. The members of this group of warriors share a deep faith.  We feel that God has somehow brought us together in His plan for this work.

 Besides being a Guest on Paranormal state episodes, I am also working with Ryan Buell as Spiritual Director to PRS.  I have also appeared on such TV Programs as Ghosts R Near, Animal Planetís The Haunted as well as Haunted Happenings.  I have also been a guest on such radio shows as Sheen LATalk Radio, Paranormal Insider, Behind the Paranormal and SHOK Radio and Anomalies Radio Talk Show, to name a few.
