We seek to restore the churchyard to an earlier point in history, increasing the historical accuracy of the environment, repair and preserve gravestones that have decayed due to extreme age, the ravages of an urban environment, and some very old damage caused by vandalism.
Gloria Dei supports the community with space for programs and cultural performances. This living space needs improvements in the heating, electrical and plumbing to newer technologies for greater efficiency. Further, the Board has set goals to reduce our carbon footprint, increase the number of restroom facilities, and add handicap accessibility.
Gloria Dei is over 300 years old and so are many of the trees. Imagine the changes they have seen — from colonization to the birth of our nation. They need your help to stay healthy and to continue as our witnesses of history as it unfolds.
