Today on the podcast, lets tackle grief together to support our crewmates.

Over 50 years ago, Winston Rice stepped on board a drilling rig in the US Gulf of Mexico. This experience ignited his passion for the maritime and offshore energy industries. Today, you can call him Chaplain or Father Winston Rice, serving those who work on the water through the Maritime Pastoral Institute.

Regardless of religion or atheism, Father Winston has always been eager to go offshore to provide support to those who are grieving, when for example a crew member passes, or to provide logistical assistance when families of a mariner have faced dire circumstances.

Today on the Women Offshore Podcast, Ally Cedeno, the founder of Women Offshore, tackles grief and hardship on the water with Chaplain Rice. No matter what your background or religion are, learn about how we can all be more supportive of our crew mates and what support is needed when facing grief offshore.
