Enter the Sacred: Catholic Virtual Reality Videos

Ever the trailblazer, Spirit Juice Studios is already investigating the implementation of high-quality, immersive video content for the Apple Vision Pro and other VR headsets.

Watch our new Enter the Sacred video series to get a sense of the possibilities of virtual reality video. The videos below were shot at the Shrine of Christ’s Passion in St. John, Indiana and at four majestic Catholic churches in Chicago: St. Stanislaus Kostka, St. John Cantius, Our Lady of the Angels, and St. Mary of Perpetual Help.

Spirit Juice Studios is embracing the technology behind the recently released Apple Vision Pro to create new video content that demonstrates the beauty of the Catholic faith through the power of immersive, virtual reality video features.

For its new Enter the Sacred series now streaming on YouTube, Spirit Juice filmed high-quality video of the majestic interiors of three Catholic churches in Chicago: St. Stanislaus Kostka, St. John Cantius, and Our Lady of the Angels. Another video in the series showcases Eucharistic Adoration at St. Mary of Perpetual Help in Bridgeport.

Paired with sacred music and the chanting of Catholic prayers, the series provides a widescreen virtual retreat for any viewer, but will be especially powerful when viewed through a VR headset device like the Meta Quest or the Apple Vision Pro.

“With the release of the Apple Vision Pro, we are one step closer to VR headsets and VR content becoming mainstream technology,” said Rob Kaczmark, president and CEO of Spirit Juice Studios. “Like it or not, I believe we are headed toward a future where most people are wearing devices like this for work, play, and everything in between. As with any new technology, the Catholic Church would be wise to become an early adopter and see how it can best be used for evangelization and the enhancement of our faith lives.”

The videos can be viewed with or without a VR headset on this YouTube playlist.

“While this is no replacement for actually participating in Eucharistic Adoration or visiting these beautiful churches, this video project is a fun way to test the limits of VR technology and provide an immersive, prayerful experience for people who may never get to see them in person or who are seeking Catholic video content on YouTube,” Kaczmark said. “We hope to produce more content like this and would love to partner with other Catholic organizations that are interested in harnessing this exciting new video format.”
