Parish of Trory and Killadeas Dawn Agape Service


Around 60 parishioners of Trory and Killadeas parish and a number of guests gathered in the pre dawn gloom of Easter Sunday on the shore of Lough Erne at Killadeas. They gathered to greet the dawn of Easter with a service of Agape at 6.30am conducted by the Rector, the Revd Mark Watson, with Mrs Hazel Allen as reader. This is the fifth year the service has been organised by the parish and after the service a breakfast of eggs, tea and toast was prepared in the parish hall for the worshippers by the choir of Killadeas. As they gathered the congregation may have seen and heard geese on the lough. Geese are traditionally associated with the Holy Spirit in the Celtic church. After the sharing of bread and wine and on a clear and beautiful morning the Easter greeting of The Lord is Risen was sounded across the lake.
