Our Story

By Alex Jones, CEO

The Beginning

I grew up Catholic, but fell away from my faith and became fascinated with secular meditation. Something, though, was always missing.

It felt like I was being pulled towards something spiritual, something more. So I started asking everyone if there was any sort of intersection between meditation and faith, and what I found changed my life.

Our Team

The Holy Spirit quickly pulled together our amazing team and we began learning about the Church’s beautiful tradition of prayer. Not just what we all knew from grade school, but deep and transformative contemplative and meditative prayer techniques. We suddenly weren’t going through the motions, but really listening for and growing closer to God.

So we quit our jobs and began building Hallow. We launched the app at the end of 2018, and have just been working to make it better ever since.
