Hallow Groups and the Friends and Family Plan serve distinct purposes. Hallow Groups or the Community Tab offer a platform for sharing content, intentions, and reflections, connecting within your faith community, and providing a space to connect with your family and friends.

If you want to share your subscription with up to 6 members, you can follow the article below to upgrade to the Friends and Family Plan.

Here's a step-by-step guide to help you begin your journey with Hallow Groups or the Community Tab:

  1. Ensure that your app is current by accessing the Apple App Store or the Android Google Play Store. If an "Update" option is available, click it to make sure you have the latest version. If not, your app has likely been updated automatically.

  2. Launch the app and proceed to the Community Tab, located at the bottom of your screen. (Kindly refer to the screenshot below)

How do I join my Hallow group?

  • If you are joining a group created by your parish or your community, you'll want to find out what the group code is and then type that in.

Please click the button below to view the steps on how to join your Hallow group.

How do I create my own Hallow group?

  1. Kindly tap the Community Tab, located at the bottom of your screen.

  2. Tap the "+" sign button found in the upper-right corner

  3. Choose the option "Create a Group"

  4. Name your group + Select preferences - After you select a name, the next screen will prompt you to customize your sharing defaults for the group.

  5. Invite the members to your group

You can invite as many people as you want. You can have people open the "camera" app on their phone to scan the QR code that is created for you. You can also tap on "share link" and invite people that way through e-mail or texts. Finally, you can also just copy and share the "group code" that is a six digit code created at the top of the page.

Congratulations! You've now created your first group. You can create as many more groups as you like by clicking the Add Group button.

What are the features of Hallow Groups or the Community Tab?

A. Add intentions, reflections, and a Mood Check - You can add the following simply by clicking the plus button at the middle left-hand side of the screen.

B. You are also able to share prayers and journal reflections after you complete a prayer. After you complete a prayer, slowly scroll down to add your reflections or thoughts. Then on the bottom left-hand side of the screen, you can decide if you'd like to share your reflection with groups or keep it private.

If you'd like to share the reflection with other groups, select the groups found on your list before you hit "Done" and "Post". After you share your reflection your group will be notified via push notification and the reflection & prayer will be posted to the group.

Group members can react to your reflection, add a reply, or play the session by clicking on it, which will lead them to the same session.

How can I customize my feed?

  • You can customize your feed content by clicking on the Feed Filter icon located in the upper right corner of the screen and selecting your preferences.

How can I make changes to the Hallow Group?

  • If you are the group creator, you will have the option to modify the group name, delete the group, and access the Admin tools, which include:

    • Invites: This feature allows group members to send invitations to those they want to join the group.

    • Completions: Enables members to share their listening activity.

    • Replies: Allows members to respond to posts shared by other members.

    • Intentions: Permits group members to post their intentions so that others can pray for them.

    • Reflections: Let members post their reflections.

    • Mood Checks: Allows members to share their mood checks.

    • Messages: This function enables members to post messages, mute notifications, edit their display name, delete the group, or add new members.

Just tap the group with which you want to make changes, then tap the group's name, click on 'Settings,' and choose 'Admin Tools' located at the bottom.
