Frequently Asked Questions

Learn more about the I AM HERE campaign

What is I AM HERE?

I AM HERE is a campaign of the Archdiocese of Detroit and Hallow App, the #1 Catholic app, in support of the National Eucharistic Revival. The campaign aims to inspire people to encounter Jesus in the Eucharist and experience its transformative power.

What are the elements of I AM HERE?

  1. Stories: Be inspired by stories of individuals like you who have been transformed by encounters with Jesus in the Eucharist. These stories will be published on the I AM HERE website and social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, TikTok and Twitter).
  2. Meditations: A series of audio meditations to help people pray in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament. These meditations are available through the Hallow App, the #1 Catholic app.
  3. Partnership with Parishes: Parishes that partner with I AM HERE will receive promotional materials to help promote Eucharistic adoration in their parish. Each partner parish will also have a dedicated page on the I AM HERE website to share stories of their parishioners who have experienced the transformative power of the Eucharist.

What is the National Eucharistic Revival?

The National Eucharistic Revival is a grassroots revival of devotion and belief in the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. We ask the Holy Spirit to ignite a fire that unleashes a movement of Catholics across the United States, healed, converted, formed and unified by an encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist — and sent out in mission ‘for the life of the world.’

How can I submit a story?

We invite you to submit your story of encountering Jesus in the Eucharist using this form. Your story can inspire others to find in Jesus what they are looking for.

How often do you publish featured stories?

We will publish a new featured story on our website and social channels weekly. These stories include beautiful photo essays and powerful testimonies of the transformative power of the Eucharist.

In addition to these featured stories, we will publish many more stories that have been shared with us. And we invite you to submit your own story!

What is the Hallow App?

Hallow is a Catholic prayer app that offers audio-guided meditation sessions to help us grow in our faith & spiritual lives and find peace in God. Explore over 1,000 different sessions on contemplative prayer, meditation, Catholic Bible readings, music, and more.

Where can I find the I AM HERE meditations?

You can listen to or read the I AM HERE meditations in the Hallow App. You can download the app here.

Do I have to pay to listen to the I AM HERE meditations?

No, you don’t need a paid subscription to access the I AM HERE meditations in the Hallow App.

Can my parish participate?

Yes! We want many parishes to join. We are starting with parishes in the Archdiocese of Detroit but plan to expand this to any parish in the United States that wants to join this effort. If you are interested in participating, please contact us at iamhere@aod.org.

What do parishes have to do to be part of the campaign?

Parishes that sign up will receive banners and postcards that they can use to promote Eucharistic adoration in their parish. We will also help these parishes gather stories of parishioners who have experienced the power of the Eucharist in their lives. These stories will be published on a dedicated page for the parish on the I AM HERE website. 

Can dioceses outside of the Archdiocese of Detroit participate?

Yes, we invite parishes from all dioceses in the US to be part of this campaign. The campaign is launching in the Archdiocese of Detroit but will be open to other dioceses. If you are interested, please contact us at iamhere@aod.org.
