This is the bell in St. Luke's belfry. It is inscribed:
Presented by the ladies of St. Luke's Church. Call the people to prayer and praise.
In 1884 this bell would have been in the original belfry that sat on the roof of the present structure. The Norman tower, where the belfry is today, wasn't built until 1904.

July 1, 2019 - Citing a need for more affordable housing in Sussex County, St. Luke's has donated a vacant lot to Sussex County Habitat for Humanity. Sussex Habitat hopes to build two homes on the property, located on North Street across from the Parish House.
"This lot used to be our playground for the children in the congregation," explained Bill Hubbard, Junior Warden of the Church Vestry. "But sadly, as our congregation has aged, we just don't see many young faces any more and the playground has gone unused for years now. We Know Habitat will be able to put this empty lot to good use."

Our annual Church on the River was followed by a Parish Picnic. We had beautiful weather. This year during the service a tugboat went by during the homily. Coming back an hour later the tug captain blew the ship's horn and we all waved.

Peggy Boyd, Senior Warden, echoed Hubbard's views: "We know that Habitat has built some really nice homes just a few blocks away, and we applaud their work to address the shortage of affordable homes in Seaford and throughout the County. As a congregation, we wanted to team up with them and be part of the solution."
Sussex habitat Executive Director Kevin Gilmore offered heartfelt thanks to the Church, noting that "donated properties are key to our ability to build homes with deserving lower-income families that are safe, attractive--and affordable."
Gilmore encourages other landowners to consider a donation to Habitat. "Although the Church won't benefit tax-wise, because of their non-profit status," he says, "other land donors can support Habitat's mission while possibly receiving a significant financial benefit at tax time."
St. Luke's welcomed Bishop Brown October 21, 2018 on his first official visit to this parish since he became the 11th Bishop of Delaware last year. Following a celebration of the Holy Eucharist, luncheon and fellowship was held in the Parish House.
We are followers of Jesus Christ, and both our worship and our mission are in Christ’s name. In Jesus, we find that the nature of God is love, and through baptism, we share in his victory over sin and death.
“In him you have brought us out of error into truth, out of sin into righteousness, out of death into life” (Book of Common Prayer, p. 368).
