Under sunny prairie skies and surrounded by lush fields, hundreds of youth and their families filled the hillside at the historic Our Lady of Mount Carmel shrine Aug. 18 for Rock the Mount, an annual celebration of Catholic faith featuring music, talks, and prayer.
Beginning as a followup to World Youth Day in Toronto in the summer of 2002, Rock the Mount Catholic youth rally once again brought together many groups, ministries, and individuals to lead the free youth-centred event.
Music was provided by the Alberta band FX of Grace, as well as by the Saskatchewan-based FacetoFace Ministries evangelization team.Read the full story at The B.C. Catholic website.
