However it is the first time for it to take place in Enniskillen where it will also become an annual event.
It is an interdenominational service and will feature music, prayer, reflection and song.

Everyone who wishes to attend will be made most welcome.
The service will begin at 3pm.
Those attending should enter the hospital building by the main entrance where they will be shown to the lecture theatre.
