Situated in the middle of a National Park, the Gloria Dei graveyard has been in continuous use since the early 1700s and is one of the oldest burial grounds in Philadelphia.  We seek to restore the churchyard to an earlier point in history, by increasing the historical accuracy of the environment, repairing and preserving gravestones that have decayed due to extreme age, the ravages of an urban environment, and some very old damage caused by vandalism.

We visited your church grounds for the first time on April 18. We were impressed by the beauty and historical significance of the church. We were greeted warmly by members enjoying each other's company that afternoon. Wanted to thank you and wish you success with your Keystone grant project.
