Catholic Church Performs Exorcism of Boise Priest's Former Home --- The house where a retired Boise priest lived for 15 years until he was accused in February of sharing child pornography online and of drug possession has been cleaned out, freshened up and blessed by an exorcist, according to the priest preparing the property for sale. “We bless houses all the time, but we seldom exorcise them,” said Father John Worster, pastor at St. Mary’s Catholic Church the past three years. “I had our diocesan exorcist and his prayer team come and pray over the house.” The house is owned by the Diocese of Boise who performed the exorcism prior to listing it for sale. Rev. Worster, who organized the exorcism, explained that the ritual was intended to clear the home of the “spiritual filth” associated with both the house and its former occupant.
