What types of ICTs are used in religion?

I am working an assignment based on ICTs and religion. What technologies and communications are used specifically involving religion? I know for example, a microphone is used in churches and an ipod can tell the time or date a fast has finished...but any further than this, I don't know what to put. Help please???

    I do know that there's an iphone app that points you towards Mecca to pray. Which is really quite sad, if you're a muslim dont you think you should know which direction Mecca is?
