Unveiling of the Gwen Ifill Forever Stamp

March 22, 2020

In recognition of International Women’s Month, Saint James African Methodist Episcopal Church cordially invites you to the unveiling of the Gwen Ifill Forever Stamp at Saint James A.M.E. Church 45 William Street Danbury, CT on Sunday, March 22, 2020 at 12:30 PM. The Postmaster of Danbury, CT will be in attendance as we pay homage to and honor the many contributions of Gwen Ifill. 

In addition to Ms. Ifill being an American journalist, television newscaster, and author, she was also a proud member of the African Methodist Episcopal Church. St James is the only A.M.E. Church in the Western CT Area, so it is important to highlight this remarkable woman in our area, especially during Women’s History Month.

The African Methodist Episcopal Church, usually called the A.M.E. Church or AME, is a predominantly African American Methodist denomination. It is the first independent Protestant denomination to be founded by black people. The AME currently has 20 districts, each with its own bishop: 13 are based in the United States, mostly in the South, while seven are based in Africa. The global membership of the AME is around 2.5 million and it remains one of the largest Methodist denominations in the world.

Please join us on Sunday, March 22, 2020 at 12:30PM at Saint James A.M.E. Church 45 William St Danbury, CT 06810 as we celebrate this awesome woman. If you are able to attend, we would appreciate the favor of a reply by March 15, 2020 to stjamesamecdanbury@gmail.com.
