LA Train Wreck - prayer request

Fr. McGrath sent a note to folks all around the province last night with a "close to home" element of the LA train wreck, including:
Many of you may have heard about the train wreck in L.A. yesterday (Friday, Sept. 12) in which a commuter train collided head-on with a freight train on the same track in Los Angeles. The death toll at this hour has risen to 17.

Fr. Donald Ashman (Church of Our Saviour and the Holy Apostles) was on the commuter train returning home from his high school teaching job. He was injured (back injury) and was treated at the hospital and sent home where he is now recovering.

Before he was taken to the hospital, Fr. Ashman administered last rites to eight or nine of those killed, including the engineer.

Please pray for Fr. Ashman, his family (his wife Ellen and children Erin and Matthew), and for those killed and injured in the wreck and their families.
