Patient #666

Case Number (Patient): 666

Patient’s Name: Sister Mary Margaret


Sister Mary Margaret became the Administrator for the St Agnes Hospital in 1975 and was for over 20 years. After many years of running the hospital a young girl, Stephanie, was brought in to be cared for by Sister Mary Margaret.


Stephanie was acting very erratic, falling into a coma like state, throwing objects, family pets had become afraid of her, and foaming at the mouth. The family had taken her to several doctors, and they examined her, but no one could come up with answers. The family took Stephanie to their local priest, Father Joel, who immediately had the family take Stephanie to the Asylum and Sister Mary Margaret.


Over the next few months it because clear that Stephanie was possessed by a demon. Father Joel, Dr. Lincoln Stone, and Sister Mary Margaret tried to perform an exorcism on Stephanie in an attempt to save her. Unfortunately, they were not successful, and Stephanie lost her fight with the demon.


At that time the demon turned its attention to those working the exorcism, Father Joel, Dr. Lincoln Stone, and Sister Mary Margaret. Sister Mary Margaret tried hard to fight the demon. Within a few days the other staff members at the Asylum noticed significant changes in Sister Mary Margaret’s behavior. It was becoming very clear that the demon from Stephanie had decided to take over the sister’s body, mind, and soul. This drove her mad and she lost her mind, body, and soul. This left the sister a shell of her former self.


The Sister now wanders the halls and grounds of the asylum looking for some peace from her madness. Several of the patients nicknamed her Sister Mary Dementia.

Introduction to The Asylum Haunted Hospital - Part 1

We are 78 days away from opening night. We hope you are as excited as we are. To pass the time until them we will be sharing bios each Friday on the Asylum and the characters in the Asylum. This is part 1 of 2 on the bio for the Asylum Haunted Hospital.


The St. Agnes Church was built in 1910 and served as a central hub for the community and its activities. The church would host picnics, ice cream socials, carnivals, and host the circus. The church was a place that the community could come to for anything they needed.


In 1930 the church determined there was a need for affordable health care for the community and they built the hospital. St. Agnes Hospital sole purpose was to provide health care and medical treatments to anyone in the community that needed it whether they could pay for it or not.


In 1975 Sister Mary Margaret was appointed the Administrator over the hospital. In 1979 Father Joel was assigned as Priest at the church with his primary responsibility being to help the patients and their families at the hospital with their spiritual needs. In 1984 she hired Dr. Lincoln Stone as an intern to work in the Psychiatric wing of the hospital. For a few years the three of them ran the hospital with no issues.


In 1990 a patient, Stephanie, came to the hospital and after months of observation it was believed she was not sick but rather possessed by a demon. Father Joel, Dr. Lincoln Stone, and Sister Mary Margaret tried to perform an exorcism on Stephanie in an attempt to save her. Unfortunately, they were not successful, and Stephanie lost her fight with the demon.


This demon was very determined to ruin the lives of everyone at the hospital. Little by little the demon went after the souls of Father Joel, Dr. Lincoln Stone, and Sister Mary Margaret. The demon’s first target was Father Joel, you’ll learn more about this in the bio for Father Joel. The next victim was Sister Mary Margaret, you’ll learn more about her in her bio. Then lastly the demon went after Doctor Lincoln Stone, watch for his bio coming soon.


Story continued in Part 2 coming on September 6th.

Casting and Sponsor Call

The Asylum Haunted Hospital (aka Asylum), presented by Ocoee Lions Club. This haunted house is unique as it is in 100% darkness and all you have is a small flashlight to light your way through the halls of the Asylum.


We have a need for actors (both male and female) and makeup artists. These actors will be patients at the Asylum and need to be able to work in the dark and with loud noises/music playing. The makeup artist will assist with getting the actors in makeup before the hospital opens to “patrons”. Makeup call time is 5PM. To volunteer at the haunt, you must be 14 year or older. In addition to the nights we are open we will have a dress rehearsal on October 14th and a Costume Fitting meeting on September 14th. The actors and makeup artists need to commit to all dates. As a reminder all positions are volunteer (this is a charity fundraising event) and the time at the haunt does quality for Bright Future volunteer and community service hours.


We are also looking for sponsors for the event. Sponsors will be listed on our website, Facebook, our ads for the event, and for donations over $200 the sponsor will be added to the event flyer.


We will be open from 7 to 10 PM ET on October 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, and 30. With 7 to 7:30PM being a no scare time so that little kids and others can see the haunt in a non-scary setting.


If you are interested in learning more please email Lion Melissa or Lion Tracey at ocoeelionsclub@gmail.com or call 321-247-7441


The haunt will be held at 108 Taylor St., Ocoee, FL. Entry fee for patrons is $5. The proceeds of this house go to the Ocoee Lions Foundation, which is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.

Coming this Fall for the 4th consecutive year

The Asylum Haunted Hospital (aka Asylum), presented by Ocoee Lions Club. The Asylum is run by Sister Mary Dementia who used to run the asylum for years and after a horrible incident with a patient of the asylum she lost her faith, her mind, and eventually her soul. She now wanders the halls and grounds of the asylum looking for some peace from her madness. Sister Mary Dementia is just one of many poor souls that have lost their mind at the Asylum. We invite you to come out and meet her and our patients.



This haunted hospital is unique as it is in 99% darkness and all you have is a small flashlight to light your way through the halls of the Asylum. Are you brave enough to try it?



This year at the Asylum we will be offering, from 7 to 7:30PM, a “lights on”, “no loud music”, “no flashing lights”, “no jumping out at guest” and “no scare” period for those that want to experience the haunted hospital but may not be able to otherwise. This would be perfect for younger children, children (or adults) with autism or other sensory disorders, and/or those with physical, emotional, or mental disabilities. Our goal is to allow everyone to have a great Halloween season and help a local charity in the process.



We will be open from 7 to 10 PM ET on October 18, 19, 24, 25, 26, and 30. Entry fee is $5. You can now purchase tickets for The Asylum at the door or ahead of time online: https://squareup.com/store/ocoeelionsclub/item/the-asylum-haunted-hospital.



The proceeds of this house go to the Ocoee Lions Foundation which is a tax-exempt, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization.



We still have a need for actors. These actors will be in a costume roaming the halls and grounds to scare patrons. As a reminder all positions are volunteer (this is a charity fundraising event).



If you are interested in learning more please email Lion Melissa or Lion Tracey at ocoeelionsclub@gmail.com.
