Say a Prayer.

A chopper carrying offshore oil workers, 18 individuals in total, went down in the Atlantic this morning. So far, one person has been confirmed dead, with 16 people still missing. Thankfully, we know that there has been at least one survivor thus far - hopefully there will be more.

In the St. John's today and indeed all across Newfoundland, the mood is quite gloomy. Everyone is heartbroken just thinking about yet another yet another large loss of life in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic. Unfortunately, we're no strangers to accidents like this; For many, today's incident will conjure up bad memories of the tragic Ocean Ranger disaster that took place over 20 years ago.

At this difficult time, please pray for those involved in the crash, their families, and the rescue personnel attempting to locate further survivors.
