The Episcopacy Window Restoration Journey publication from the Metropolitan AME Public Relations Commission is available for download.
The “Episcopacy Window” – one of twenty-nine (29) windows in The Metropolitan African Methodist Episcopal Church (MAMEC) of Washington, DC – was recently restored, as part of the restoration project. Although the church is still undergoing restoration, the 123-year old “Episcopacy Window” – having completed a “journey” from the church to the restoration studio of Higgins & Associates in Front Royal, Virginia – is now back in all of its splendor and beauty, and resting majestically in its original location on the balcony level of the sanctuary. To protect the window during removal for restoration and re-installation, scaffolding was built around the window – both inside and outside.
This brochure was written and produced by Metropolitan A.M.E. Public Relations Commission member Delores Zimmerman‐Jeter with assistance from PRC members Nancy Harvin and Ruby Gourdine. Photographs were provided by Higgins & Associates, Stained Glass Restoration Studio.
