The Catholic Register writes, "Most 16-year-olds worry about getting good grades and maintaining friendships. Vera Schiff’s main concern was to stay alive. Schiff shared her story to an audience of young adults at an April 23 Faith Connections’ Theology on Tap event where she discussed her spiritual resistance in a concentration camp. Between 1942 and 1945, she was held at the Theresienstadt camp in Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia, where she endured many hardships but found ways to maintain her humanity."

Vanessa Santilli of The Catholic Register writes, "Finding it hard to fit prayer time into a hectic schedule, one of the sisters told me it might be helpful to get creative in my prayer life in order to better understand how God is speaking to me. So, along with the regular Hail Marys and Our Fathers, I started reading random Bible passages and keeping a journal to better open the lines of communication. When I heard about Lenten Listening: A Busy Person’s Retreat, I jumped at the opportunity."

Sixty-five participants joined Faith Connections, Development and Peace and the University of Toronto Newman Centre for a day of retreat entitled “Ecological Justice: The Connection Between Catholicism and the Environment”. The day combined talks by Dr. Dennis Patrick O’Hara, a professor of Ethics and Eco-Theology at St. Michaels College with group discussions, prayer, reflection and the Mass.
On February 27, Theology on Tap welcomed Sr. Noreen Allosery-Walsh, OSU and her talk "Our Lenten Journey — Engaging the World from an Ecological Perspective".
Sr. Noreen spoke of how faith and science can be united through the discipline of cosmology, or viewing Creation in the context of the universe.

Due to the warm weather, and the lack of snow, the event was changed to Hike & Prayer."
