Dadvent 2020

It’s been a long and stressful year for most of us. Which means this Advent could be an especially powerful one as we prepare our hearts for the coming of Jesus at Christmas.

Dadvent is a virtual gathering of husbands and fathers from across the Diocese who will gather online through Zoom video conferencing each Sunday night of Advent to reflect on the Sunday readings and share in a time of fellowship together.

We will pull themes from each of the Sunday readings, but the overall goal is to strengthen our homes, families, and marriages by focusing on St. Joseph. Dadvent will begin promptly at 8pm with a welcome and opening prayer, followed by a short reflection by a priest from the Diocese of Owensboro. We will then break into small discussion “rooms” and gather back as a large group for a guided, silent prayer before ending with a call to action for the next week. Our goal is to be finished within an hour.

We want as many men to be involved as possible, so we’re calling on parish men’s groups, Knights of Columbus Councils, and invited all men in all parishes to join us for #Dadvent2020.

There is no cost, but we are asking men to register for #Dadvent2020 at so we can email the access link to you for security reasons.
