Advent Holy Day
Package For Parishes
As we approach the manger this Advent, we are once again reminded that despite the chaos of the past 2 years, we remain a community of hope.
Through the many physical, economic, emotional, and spiritual challenges we face, we are comforted by the fact that God loves us so much that he sent us his only son in the form of a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes.
This Advent, we want to invite faith communities across the world to come together in solidarity and re-center on this life-changing reality; Christ is alive and He wants to know each and every one of us.
We are here to help.
Hallow is a Catholic prayer and meditation app that helps users deepen their relationship with God through audio-guided contemplative prayer.
The app has over 3,000 individual prayer sessions and with 1, 5, 10, 15, 30, and 60 minute options, Hallow truly has something for everyone.
Hallow is free to download and has permanently free content, as well as a premium subscription called “Hallow Plus” that includes the rest of the content library. Hallow Plus is usually $60/year.

For Advent and More
This Advent, we will be coming together to pray our #Pray25 community challenge.
These daily meditations will focus on the core themes of Mary bringing Christ into the world.
There will be different types of prayer throughout each week, leaning heavily on Scripture to help us understand and grow in virtue. A few highlights:
- Week 1 Focus: Hope
- Week 2 Focus : Faith
- Week 3 Focus: Joy
- Final 7 Days: Reflections on Christ’s many titles in the traditional “O Antiphons”

From Our Community
Real Impact for Real People
A Pastor’s Perspective
“I love ya’ll so much. I’m a Priest and I love love love this app. I get so much out of it. God guided me to this app … but I wanted ya’ll to know that I am so grateful for what you are doing. You have no idea how deeply I’ve been touched by this app and I’ve only used it like half a dozen times. I can tell that this is going to deepen my relationship with Christ and His Holy Mother such as I’ve never experienced before.
I can tell that this is going to deepen my relationship with Christ and His Holy Mother such as I’ve never experienced before.
So much of modernity is a constant frenetic juggle of tasks, and just having something to cause you to sit down and meditate on God is so invaluable to this world. It always has been and this need will only continue to grow. I literally have no criticism to give, everything is so well done and Providential, I’m amazed.
May God continue to guide you all so intimately, and may we abandon ourselves to His Divine Providence, the ultimate of all spiritual exercises. Amen.”
“Hallow right now is bringing me back to my faith and I will see where it goes. I abandoned my Catholic upbringing because I struggle with religion being the root of so much division and war in our world. I’ve just recently introduced Hallow and am taking great comfort in welcoming God back into my life. ”
Respite of Peace
“As a working mom of 2 under two, sometimes it has seemed impossible to prioritize a prayer life. Hallow has given me a simple way to take time out of my day to be with God. I love that the sessions can be different lengths depending on how much time I have! It’s been life changing.”
A Weary Soul
“This app has been an answer for my weary soul. Tears pour as I try to impress on you how deeply I am impacted by the guidance of simply being with God. This is where my soul is finding peace for the very first time.”
This is where my soul is finding peace for the very first time.
“Thank you so much for this app. I’m only 14, but I learned that the more I pray the closer I feel to God, which leads me to complete Joy. I’ve used this app for a couple of days now and I’m in love. You’ve encouraged me to become closer to the Bible and the word of God. Thank you so much, you changed my life.”
