St. Luke's Episcopal Church

Festival of Lessons and Carols

Welcome to The Right Reverend Kevin S. Brown, 11th Bishop of Delaware

 Heaven-Bound Ministries

We are really excited about the special service we had on Sunday, July 1st. Heaven-Bound Ministries, our nearest church neighbor, joined with St. Luke's for a joint service blending the worship styles of both churches. This was a truly joyful celebration of the love of Jesus Christ.

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.

​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.

Pastor Marianne Ell delivers the 2018 Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival's opening prayer, in which she stressed unity and strengthening of the community.

She then joined two other local pastors in judging AFRAM's first Sweet Potato Pie Contest. The contest was won by Michelle Cannon, who took home a medal, $50.00, and bragging rights

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).


Take the first step toward personal renewal and living life abundantly – join us for services this weekend!

The Eastern Shore AFRAM Festival Art Show was held at the Seaford Distrct Library. Quilter Brenda Holbrook displayed her quilts, one of which depicts the churches of Seaford. The section of the quilt showing St. Luke's is presented in this image.

The Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols was first celebrated at King's College, Cambridge on Christmas Eve, 1918. It was an adaptation of a similar service that had been written for the cathedral at Truro in 1880.  The lessons, and music, move deliberately from the season of Advent into Christmastide. The festival features readings about the birth of Christ, interspersed with Christmas carols.

Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry invites us to respond to God's call to be "the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement" -- living as faithful followers and sharing the Good News with the world.
