Contemplative Prayer: What It is and How Anyone Can Do It

In today's world, hearing "mediation" can trigger thoughts of India and Eastern spirituality, but did you know that the Catechism recommends that all Christian meditate daily? In this talk, Alessandro, one of the co-founders of Hallow Catholic prayer & meditation app, will talk about the differences between secular and sacred meditation and share practical tips on how to incorporate contemplative prayer into everyday life.


Alessandro is one of the Co-Founders and Head of Growth at Hallow. Raised in a large Italian-American family, Alessandro is a proud product of Catholic education from kindergarten through college, ultimately graduating from the University of Notre Dame with a double-major in finance and economics. Alessandro began a career on Wall St, first in New York City and then Chicago, but after a series of life-changing experience in prayer, quit his job in finance to join his friends in building Hallow, a Catholic prayer and meditation app. Launched only a year and a half ago, Hallow has already been used to pray over 1.5 million times in over 50 countries and is the #1 Catholic app in the US App Store.
