Deltas purchase N.O church for community center

An act of sale of Epiphany Church was signed between the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Corpus Christi-Epiphany Church and the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Foundation. The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Foundation purchased the church buildings, located at 1949 Duels Street, to renovate into a community resource center serving the Seventh Ward area of District “D”.

After the signing, District “D” Councilmember Jared Brossett said, “It is with great pleasure that I announce the sale of Epiphany Catholic Church to the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Foundation. I’ve worked closely with the Archdiocese of New Orleans, Corpus Christi-Epiphany Church and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority leadership to help facilitate this sale. The Delta Sigma Theta Sorority has made a great investment into our community. The resource center will help reduce blight and place an historic piece of property back into use.”

Attending the September 29th signing was Demetric Mercadel, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority member Sheila Danzey, Epiphany Church’s Father Roderick J.D. Coates and Archbishop Gregory M. Aymond.
