McKenna, Bishop Robert

Bishop Robert McKenna (1927– ) is a Dominican bishop at Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel in Monroe, Connecticut. Bishop Robert McKenna has performed Exorcisms, including at the haunted house known as the SMURL Haunting in Pennsylvania, and in Warren, Massachusetts, featured in the book Satan’s Harvest (1990).

He has worked with Ed and Lorraine Warren, John Zaffis, and other lay Demonologists. McKenna was ordained a priest in 1958 and a bishop in 1986. He has said that many officials in the church do not wish to believe that the Devil exists, or, if they do believe, they do not want to become involved with him. McKenna has retired from performing exorcisms.
