Best Advent Ever 2016 | Dynamic Catholic


Dynamic Catholic is excited to bring you our next Advent program, Best Advent Ever: Rediscover Christmas! Last year’s program focused on how to experience God’s mercy and share it with others. This year, the program will help you slow down and focus on what matters most during the busy holiday season. Experience Christmas like you never have before!

When does it start?
Look for your first email on Sunday, November 27. (The program ends Monday, December 26.)

What can I expect?
You will receive an email every day during Advent:

  • Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday – Watch a 1- to 2-minute video from one of our great presenters who dives deeper into the theme for the week.
  • Thursday – Watch a short, personal video from a Dynamic Catholic team member.
  • Saturday – Get a free song from our brand new Christmas CD.
  • Sunday – Catch up on any videos you missed, and get a preview for the coming week.

Similar to our past programs, Best Advent Ever will allow you to comment on each post and join in discussions with fellow participants.

We’re excited to take another life-changing journey with you. Are you ready for your best Advent ever?

The Dynamic Catholic Team
