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 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 music will be added in upcoming releases.Rosaries
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 enables you to say the entire rosary without touching the screen.
Open your app and choose from five rosary styles at any time:
- Traditional Daily
- Modern Daily
- Divine Mercy
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.Eucharistic Adoration
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.Prayer Requests
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 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
