Explore one of the oldest churches in the country. Considered the oldest church building in Pennsylvania, the Gloria Dei (Old Swedes’) Episcopal Church was designated as a National Historic Site in 1942, six years before Independence Hall. The church, which was built between 1698 and 1700 for Swedish settlers, has attractive features and gorgeous black header brick. Gloria Dei still holds active church services comprised of encouraging music, Episcopal worship, spiritual teachings, and community. In addition to their services, the church holds several community programs, such as the Lucia Fest, a Swedish advent pageant that features girls and boys from local communities as well as the Greater Philadelphia Region, Maryland, Connecticut, and Vermont. Guests participate in this three-day festival of performances, as well as St. Eric’s Fair/Holiday Market, and a church-led bake sale.
