Are you looking for a Catholic community? Do you wish you could grow deeper in your Catholic faith? Now you can bring the Catholic faith to you, right from your smartphone.
iSanctuary is an entire digital Catholic experience: Augmented Reality (AR) chapel, Prayers, Rosaries, Prayer requests, Eucharistic Adoration, Music, Divine Mercy novena, Devotions, Stations of the Cross, Vatican links, Catholic bible and encyclopedia and a Church locater to help you remain rooted and steadfast in your faithful experience. Use our app to enhance your connection with the Catholic community, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, as well as Catholic churches near you.
Virtual (AR) Chapel
Now you can connect and engage with your faith in the Augmented Reality (AR) chapel that is accessible to you anytime/anywhere. Light a candle and say a prayer. Kneel at the altar where you can write your prayer or petition on a plaque by the candles. Select the artwork that you want in the chapel. Religious art, music, stations of the cross, visual elements and scriptures throughout the chapel create a contemplative environment for prayer and meditation.
Music / Ambience
The Audio feature contains selections from the 'Miracles' album by emerging Christian music artist Lily Marie Antonini (The complete ‘Miracles’ album is available on iTunes). Ambient sounds enable you to create a more pleasing soundscape while praying or relaxing and they can continue playing in the background while using any other feature in the app. Prayers and more music will be added in upcoming releases.
Our app contains both traditional and modern versions of the rosary and the Divine Mercy rosary, with all mysteries adjusted by the day of the week, as well as the liturgical season according to the church calendar. Rosaries are customizable and optimized with Siri shortcuts.
Hands-Free mode lets you say the entire rosary without touching the screen.
Open your app and choose from five rosary styles at any time:
Stations of the Cross
Embark on a mini pilgrimage as you meditate and reflect on each event depicted in the Stations of the Cross and their meaning for our lives today.
Links to Eucharistic Adoration live streams for those times we are unable to be there in-person.
Novenas / Devotions
A Novena to the Divine Mercy and a General Catholic Devotions book is included with the app.
When you submit a prayer request, it will be posted in the iSanctuary prayer cloud where you will receive prayer and encouragement from the community. Praying for others is a way to care for someone, even if they are in another part of the world. Your prayer concerns are an important part of the community: connecting, praying for and uplifting one another. In everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known.
Encyclopedia and Bible
Catholic Encyclopedia and Bible links are included to online references.
Catholic Church Finder
You can search by state, city, zip code, name, and other specifications when using our search feature to find a church that is right for you. Check out the pins on the map, click on the listings, and access phone numbers and addresses immediately, providing you with directions.
Vatican Site Links
Easy to use links are included that will take you to the Vatican News and Word of the Day.
Are you ready to grow deeper in your Christian faith? Access a world of online sanctuary waiting for you to simply open the app. Our prayers are even available in English, Spanish, AND Latin. Easy to use and even easier to share, spread the good news on the release of iSanctuary.

Amazing and helpful!
This app is very useful for me because when I am in a hurry to go somewhere, I can grab the app and still pray. I can also follow correct directions for rosary prayers and etc if I forget. This app is one of my Favorites because it helps to strengthen your faith with the images, prayers, and options in general. I would highly recommend to All!
Love it - but
This is everything I have been looking for in an app. The one thing I wish you could come up with is a way to have a real human voice saying the prayers instead of the robotic sounding voices. I use this when I walk or am otherwise busy and the canned voice detracts from prayers
An all around great look and feel and very user friendly. Awesome features too. For example, I can ask Siri to “pray the Rosary” and it will launch the app’s Rosary feature. All the prayers are here and it even includes a church finder. Great app!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
