One Rock 2.0

Building from the legacy of the past eight years, One Rock 2.0 is the new and reimagined One Rock Festival of Faith.  This will be an event exclusively open to young adults’ ages 18-35 (married or single) contained to one day at Calgary’s St. Michael’s Church, on Saturday, September 29, 2018.

The new approach we will use is designed to positively impact our young adults, our parishes, the lay organizations in the diocese working with young adults, the Church and the world. For One Rock 2.0, we are moving to a delegate model of attendance. Every parish in Calgary, each diocese in Alberta and all Catholic lay associations involving young adults are invited to send a delegation to One Rock. We want the experience to be enriching and formative for all in attendance such that they return to their faith communities inspired, challenged and equipped as protagonists in the new evangelization.
