Leading the retreat is Valerie Lewis-Mosley, a registered nurse, scholar and lay Dominican who engages faith and culture through the lens of Black Catholic spirituality. She uses her Dominican spirituality and Jesuit roots to facilitate her work as a social justice advocate to combat racism and disparities in health care access with society and the church.

She has been involved in parish ministry as a director of religious education and in faith formation for children and youth for more than 30 years. She is currently serving on the USCCB project “Journeying Together,” a discussion with youth and young adults in the church.

Lewis-Mosley has written two research projects on the role of Black Catholic lay women and has published essays in Catholic publications.
