Unfortunately not yet, because of tax considerations we are currently only available in the U.S. but we have plans to launch in other countries in the future!
One of the prayer types that Hallow offers is called Lectio Divina, where the user reads a passage from scripture or a prayer, identifies a word or phrase that sticks out to them, and continues to meditate on that word or phrase. The first time that Hallow's CEO & Co-founder, Alex, prayed through Lectio Divina, he was meditating on the Our Father and 'hallow' was the word that stuck out to him from the phrase 'hallowed be thy name'. Furthermore, the word itself means "to make holy", and that is the core of Hallow's mission: to let God hallow our lives, and to help others do the same.
The app begins with a free trial and then starts at $8.99 per month for full access to the content. For each subscription purchased, we pledge to give another away. Our goal is to provide Hallow for free to organizations in need, (e.g., faith immersion programs, retreats, Christian non-profits) to help in the formation of faith lives how we can.
All of our content is based in Catholic teaching and we are working closely with members of the Catholic Church to bring you the best content possible, but the hope is that Hallow can be a resource for help those of all faith backgrounds regardless of denomination.

Our content team is currently led by three passionate folks, all with degrees and backgrounds in theology. Two have theology degrees from the University of Notre Dame (one Master’s and the other undergraduate) and the other is currently finishing his Master in Divinity (MDiv). Those are the folks who do the leg work on the content, but we also have a group of senior advisors who help to review, brainstorm, edit and provide guidance on our scripts to varying degrees to make sure the content is the highest possible quality (includes PhD’s in theology, professors of spirituality, authors, Bishops etc.).
We are so excited and blessed to share in your faith journey. Know that everyone here at Hallow is praying for you!
