From a photo of a ghost at a Christening to the ghost of a priest seen at his own funeral we count 10 creepy church ghost sightings caught on camera.
10. Hooded Figure Filmed at The Vatican
In 2016, a tourist captured this startling footage while waiting in line to enter Saint Peter’s Basilica in The Vatican City.
The video appears to show a mysterious figure wearing a dark, hooded robe perched in one of the church’s bell towers. The figure doesn’t even appear to be distracted by the ringing bell as it stares ominously upon the crowd below.
When the video first appeared, it sent lovers of the paranormal into a social media frenzy. Some believed that the figure was a fallen angel while others thought it may have been the ghost of someone who had committed suicide by leaping from the bell tower. a few even noted the figure’s eerie resemblance to The Slender Man.
While the true identity of the figure remains unknown, one thing is certain. It sure makes for a very creepy video.
9. Ghost Town Resident Caught on Tape
This photo was taken in an old church in the ghost town of Bannack, Montana. According to the story attached to the picture, the woman in the bottom right, heard shuffling sounds coming from the other side of the room. She looked but couldn’t see anything there. It wasn’t until the woman had the photos developed that she saw the ghostly figure sitting in the seats on the other side.
The town of Bannack was founded in 1862. It was originally a mining town that saw its population dwindle over time. It became completely abandoned when the last few residents left sometime in the 1970’s. Since then the town has remained empty.
Could it be possible that this woman has photographed the ghost of one of the town’s former residents?
8. The Eastry Church Ghost
This photo was taken by a Mr Bootman while visiting a church in the village on Eastry, England. Bootman claims that when he took the photo the only other person present in the church was the cleaning lady.
When the image was first developed it was thought that it showed the ghost of a vicar who had once resided over the church. Could it be possible? The figure certainly appears to be praying. His head is bowed, hands are clasped and he has a solemn look on his face.
What do you think? Could the figure seen in this photo actually be the ghost of a deceased vicar or could it be someone or something else entirely?
7. Wedding Day Specter
There is very little information available about this photo other than that it was taken at a wedding and neither the guests nor bridesmaids noticed anything strange during the ceremony.
However, the photo reveals a dark hooded figure hovering in front of the stained glass window. The figure, which appears to be floating at least 3-4 feet off the ground, has a misty, ghost-like quality about it as it looms over the ceremony.
Who could this mysterious figure be and why is it wearing a dark, hooded robe? Perhaps it is a priest or monk? Or could it be a deceased relative or someone else with a connection to the church? Without further information we may never know.
6. Ghost Photographed at Christening
This image was captured in 2012, by a man named Jamie Sewell. He took the photo while attending his niece, Mia-Bella’s christening at St Martin’s church in Canterbury, south east England.
The photo appears to show the ghostly head of another person just over the shoulder of the woman in white. However, it wasn’t until later that day when the family gathered at a local pub that they made the startling discovery whilst reviewing the photos on Facebook.
Mia-Bella’s grandmother Heather Sewell, initially spotted the face and was immediately shocked at how similar it looked to that of her late husband Terry who had taken his own life when he was just 41.
“I couldn’t believe the likeness to my Terry and was completely amazed to see him at the christening. It knocked me back when I saw the picture. It looks so much like him. It was actually a bit upsetting to see his face. I tried to convince myself it was not Terry but it is so convincing that I believe it is.” Sewell said after viewing the photograph.
Is it possible that this photo actually shows the ghost of Heather’s late husband, Terry? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
