Lutz family moved the house on December 18, 1975. Most of the DeFeo family furniture was still there, because all included in the purchase and sale agreement. A friend of George Lutz has learned about the past history of the house, and urged them to do the blessing. But they did not understand his ways. George knew a Catholic priest named Father Ray, and he was willing to do the blessing. (In Anson's book mentioned name is Reverend Father Mancuso. This is done to maintain the privacy of the Reverend, his real name was Father Ralph J. Pecoraro).
Father Mancuso is a lawyer, a Catholic priest and a psychotherapist who lives in the Sacred Heart Rectory. He arrived to perform a blessing on the afternoon of December 18, 1975 while George and Kathy were unpacking their belongings. When he wagged his first holy water and began to pray, he heard a voice clearly saying "Get out!" - "Get out!". While leaving the house, he was not told what happened to George and Kathy. On December 24, 1975, Father Mancuso called George Lutz and advised him not to use the room where he had heard the strange sound. This room is a room that she planned to use as a sewing room, and had been the bedroom Marc and John Matthew DeFeo. Disconnected telephone conversation abruptly, and the next visit to the house of the Father Mancuso cause high fever, and the arms found signs similar to the signs stigmata.
