Seafarers International House [cached]

Our port chaplain in the Port of Baltimore, Rev. Gerry Rickel, received word that the bulk carrier M/V Aqua grace was scheduled to arrive in port, having lost one of her seafarers, who perished when swept overboard at sea.

For seafarers, most accidents do not occur "close to home", and aggravating the sense of isolation felt by the seafarers and their families is the realization that the seafarer may not return home.
Rev. Rickel made a visit to the Aqua Grace his first priority of the morning. Passing through security was easy, with the routine, but unwitting question by the security guard at the terminal gate, "taking anybody out today, chaplain? Climbing up the gangway, he was directed to the captain's office and waited until the captain concluded his meeting with the Coast Guard officer.
Rev. Rickel asked about the perished seafarer and offered to perform a shipboard memorial service. The captain said that would be especially welcomed since they had been at sea for so long and had not had a "mass" for months. He asked the port chaplain to return to the ship late afternoon and he would have the crew assembled.
Upon our port chaplain's return, the captain indicated that the crew wished to have dinner before the memorial service and invited the chaplain to join them. Afterwards, everybody went into the meeting room set up for the service. The crew sang Psalm 23 and another hymn, accompanied by one of the sea- farers playing guitar. Rev. Rickel offered a homily, and assisted by the captain, distributed the sacrament to the entire crew, including the seafarer manning the gangway.
