In a silent way

Father Frances Steiger blesses Shiner with holy water as he exits the last liturgy of the day, known as Compline, before the start of the evening's Grand Silence, which lasts until 2:30 a.m. "What I hoped was for students to have an opportunity to spend a weekend experiencing another way of being a Christian, another way of living out the Gospel in the world," says Shiner. "Hopefully . . . awaking to a richer experience."
