** The #1 Catholic App **
Hallow is a prayer app that offers guided meditation sessions to help us grow in our faith & spiritual lives and find peace in God. Explore contemplative prayer & meditation sessions with techniques like:
* Christian Meditation: finding peace through imaginative prayer & recollection. This can seem similar to mindfulness meditation in learning to be comfortable in silence, but the difference is the goal of our sessions is never to remain in ourselves, but always to lift our hearts & minds to God, to talk with Him, listen to Him, & recognize His presence with us
* Ignatian Examen: reflecting on your day & discovering an awareness of God, Jesus, & the Holy Spirit in the present moment
* Lectio Divina: entering into a conversation with God through passages from the Bible / Scripture
* Spiritual Writing: journaling with God
* Taizé & Chant: meditative chant & singing
* Rosary: meditating with Mary through the mysteries of the Rosary
In today’s world, we’re stressed, anxious, distracted & can’t sleep. At the same time, we’re searching for deeper meaning, purpose, & relationship. We believe these two challenges can be addressed with the same solution: peace in Jesus. In the end, after all, a halo & heaven is the goal :)
WHAT YOU GET
Hallow’s intuitive & personalized experience begins with a 9-day intro that guides you through 3 different methods of prayer. After this, it’s up to you to choose from our collection of over 500 sessions:
*Daily prayer: Pray daily across methods including Lectio Divina (on the Daily Gospel), the Rosary, Spiritual Writing, & the Examen.
*Praylists: Sessions centered on one particular theme, e.g., joy, humility, making decisions, calm, letting go.
*Challenges: Prayers usually focused on re-discovering the beauty within prayers like the Our Father, Stations of the Cross, Psalms and Saints.
*Community: Prayers with a set schedule to pray along with the rest of the Hallow community, such as the #pray40 Lenten Challenge, which begins on Ash Wednesday and continues throughout all of Lent (can be a great complement to a Lenten Exodus 90 :)).
*Sleep: Prayers designed specifically to help you prepare to sleep, including Night Prayer from Liturgy of the Hours / Divine Office, Catholic bible stories, and nightly Examens.
Additionally, Hallow offers a number of features to help you customize your prayer experience:
* Journal for users to capture their thoughts after every prayer
* Choice of male or female guide
* Options for 3 different lengths for every prayer (typically 5, 10, or 15 minutes)
* Ability to set prayer reminders
* Option to include calming background music like Gregorian Chant in any session
* Ability to download sessions for offline listening
As Hallow is a Catholic app, all of our content is developed by experienced Catholic theology and spirituality guides and reviewed by senior leaders within the Church (e.g., PhD’s, professors, Bishops, authors) and based on content from the approved Catholic Bible. While it can be a beautiful app for Catholic men and Catholic women, it is meant as a resource for people of all faiths & religions.

Must Have App for Contemplatives
I am so thrilled with this app. The content is incredible. I love that the content regularly changes to reflect the liturgical seasons, as well as daily for such features as the gospel reflections & rosary. There are so many features to use from themed practices to specific types of prayer to seasonal and current event relevant prayers. I love the in depth challenge features of the Our Father and Stations of the Cross, the daily Examen, the Sleep prayer options, the liturgy of the hours . . . and I love that you can set and track goals, streaks, and journal thoughts from a session. The Guest section includes so many incredible resources from experts . . . this app is just packed with the best Catholic contemplative prayer content and it is very well engineered . . . super user friendly. Finally, it's great to have two different voice options as well as the option to choose ambient music, silence or gregorian chant to accompany your prayer/meditation sessions. I highly recommend this app. It has definitely revolutionized my prayer life because now when I wake up in the morning, I have an auto reminder to sit in prayer when I pick up my phone rather than scroll through other fluff and news. Bravo!
Best decision of an app purchase!
I really struggle with prayer and anxiety at night. I was looking for something to help as I fell asleep or while laying in bed to calm my heart and mind. But I wanted something that was 1- Catholic! And 2- orthodox! I was honestly skeptical when I randomly saw a Facebook add for Hallow. Most “catholic” prayer aides I’ve come across saying things like “meditation” have a very skewed idea of meditation and it tends to quickly digress into things like “finding your third eye” 🤢 what I LOVE about the creators of Hallow is that they desire to reclaim meditation as a unique Christian form of prayer. It has always belonged to the Church and we are responsible for continuing this life giving practice!
This is my 4th day using the app and it has already been a game changer! I’m excited to get to bed now, so I can have those last few moments of my day in prayer! The guided meditation is not cheesy and has so many options! I feel more peace then I have for awhile and I find that I’m more aware during my day of the Lord, communicating with Him as my day goes on. I love this app and have been telling everyone about it!
This app can change your life- and not just for Catholics!
I stumbled upon the Christian tradition of contemplative prayer about a year ago and promptly began practicing it on my own. I was pretty good about doing it most every day, but some days were certainly more focused than others. Someone told me about Hallow and I immediately fell in love. I cannot rave enough about this app! I have told all my friends about it (most of whom are not Catholic). Now I can do multiple meditations a day and sometimes I will turn on the angelus or rosary while I am cooking or cleaning for an extra spiritual boost. I have been using the free version for a few months and there is so much great content that I feel like I’m stealing from them! 😬 I will definitely buy the premium version eventually, because this app has already helped me so hugely in deepening my relationship with Christ. Now I feel totally “off” and not nearly as kind or happy when I skip my morning prayer session. I cannot recommend this highly enough- if you commit to it and keep the habits going, it WILL change your life!
