Finding God in the Digital World: Introducing Wanderlight!

Wanderlight Catholic video game

St. Ignatius taught that a life of faith leads us to find God in all things, whether it be nature, experiences, relationships, or even technology. It is no surprise, then, that Ignatius did not hesitate to use cutting-edge technology—the printing press—to proclaim the Gospel to the world in the 16th century. In that same spirit, Loyola Press is proud and excited to introduce Wanderlight: A Pilgrim’s Adventure™ —an immersive digital game to help young people learn and deepen the practice of our Catholic faith.

Wanderlight is a groundbreaking online game for Catholic kids of all ages. The game invites players to explore the four pillars of the Catholic faith in an engaging and beautiful virtual world and venture out in their role as “the Pilgrim”—a faith-filled seeker on a quest to discover and experience core teachings of the faith while practicing how to “walk in the light” and live as a faithful disciple of Jesus Christ.

Catechists and religion teachers will be happy to know that, at every level, Wanderlight reinforces Catholic doctrine and practices, allows players to practice their faith, and truly engages children. This game can be used to enhance Finding God: Our Response to God’s Gifts®, Christ Our Life®, or any faith formation program.

The God who created us is the God of all things—including the digital world! Let’s help children and young people find God in the digital world, which is so much a part of their 21st-century lives.
