November 2022 Sankofa Institute for African American Pastoral Leadership Workshop

In this lecture dr. davis takes a deeper look at racial violence against black and brown bodies in the U.S. through the lens of liturgy, expanding attendees’ understanding of liturgy as a reading of life and current situations—that our lives are filled with liturgies.

The presentation is sponsored by Sankofa Institute for African American Pastoral Leadership.


dr. timone davis* is a cradle Catholic who was a “pewster” until she discovered that the uselessness of the Church was because she wasn’t giving anything of herself. After committing to getting involved, her life changed. Her first ministry was with the RCIA, where she not only welcomed others into the Church, but also revitalized her own spirituality.

After working for the Archdiocese of Chicago as the coordinator of ReCiL – Reclaiming Christ in Life Young Adult Ministry, timone co-founded PEACE centered WHOLENESS with her husband Orlando, where they are blending clinical counseling and spiritual companioning.

In addition to running a business, timone is an assistant professor in the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago. In her spare time, she serves as the treasurer of the National Institute for Ministry with Young Adults and Associate Convener of the Black Catholic Theological Symposium.

timone’s dynamic energy and deep spirituality enhance her brand of teaching that engages one’s spirit through the use of storytelling. No matter the occasion, timone’s mission is to help others open their hearts and minds to the soul-saving power of God’s Grace, Love and Mercy.

*dr. timone davis uses lower case letters in the spelling of her name to indicate her willingness to embody the creedal assertion in John 3:30 in her everyday living.
