Hello! Do you know who administers the cemetery next to the old All Saints Church? I have ancestors buried there (Stegmenn, Keller, Gensheimer, Williman) and I'd love to go in and visit their graves. The last time I was in Philly though, the gate was locked. I wasn't sure if I should call the SJC parish office or the Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery office next time I'm in town.
