A Sea of Red: Delta Day At St. Stephen

By: Min. Angela Lee Price



On Sunday, March 8th, members of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Louisville Alumnae Chapter, attended worship service at St. Stephen Church in Louisville. Delta member and Courier Journal Newspaper editorial columnist Betty Baye' welcomed her sorority sisters to St. Stephen, her home church. She said, "Rev. Jesse Jackson didn't have to tell us that they were somebody. We have known it since 1913, the year of Delta's founding at Howard University."

Senior Pastor Rev. Dr. Kevin Cosby addressed the group of more than 100 women in red at the 9:40 worship service, and noted the historical achievement of Delta Sigma Theta's founding in Kentucky. Xi Chapter, the undergraduate chapter at the University of Louisville, was originally founded at Simmons College of Kentucky, the school where he serves as 13th president. The organization's 13 chapter was the first greek undergraduate chapter founded in Kentucky.

Delta Day at St. Stephen, coordinated by the Delta membership committee, was one in a series of special activities designed to reclaim sorors who are not members of the chapter and to build a greater bond among current chapter members. In January, the membership committee hosted the Rainbow Brunch: A Delta Round Up. More than 60 sorors attended this fun filled day of sisterly bonding. After the February chapter meeting, Delta members gathered at downtown venue for lunch and laughs. Each soror in attendance received a special Valentine from the membership committee. Following service at St. Stephen, chapter members gathered for brunch at the Bristol on Main Street.
