Join an international community in prayer to explore the mystery and wonder of Advent! AdventWord is a global, online Advent calendar produced by the publishers at Forward Movement. A single word from the Sunday Lectionary readings is chosen for each day of the Advent season. A daily meditation and visual image inspired by this word are posted on, emailed to participants, and shared on their Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. Around the world, prayers ascend in response to the daily meditations. People share their own reflections and visual art on their social media profiles, tagging #AdventWord to share with the wider community. Sign up to receive the daily email meditation during Advent, and follow us on FacebookInstagram, and Twitter.

Deacon Gerry has a special love for AdventWord and invites everyone to join her this Advent season. For each day’s word, think about what it means to you and share it with Deacon Gerry ( Your expression of its meaning can be done using text, pictures, haikus, poems, icons, paintings, and videos. Be creative! Deacon Gerry will post your submission to the St. Francis Facebook page and must receive your submission by 8 p.m. on the day that word is featured. Please tag in your submissions:  #Adventword   #(Daily AdventWord)   #stfrancisdunellen
