What is AdventWord?

AdventWord provides visual and written meditations during the liturgical season of Advent. In 2020, Advent begins on Sunday, November 29. The written meditations will be provided in English, Spanish, Haitian Creole, and in American Sign Language on YouTube. Each morning during Advent, the meditations are distributed: on, Email, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

Around the world, prayers ascend in response to the meditations. People post their reflections on their respective social media pages, tagging AdventWord on the platform. From there, AdventWord shares and reposts on each site – amplifying the prayers during this holy season. Find the social feed on the AdventWord website, or on your favorite social media platform.

Explore the different ways that people respond to the daily words, whether written meditations, drawings, photographs, or poems. And don’t forget to share on the St. Stephen’s Facebook page and Instagram, as well!
