Who we are

Our church has been in the Bustleton neighborhood for 150 years. We welcome everyone. We have youth programs, outreach, choir and various community events. We're a small parish with a big heart!
 
Our History: Pauline Henry wanted to memorialize her late husband Bernard Henry, MD- a naval surgeon who was lost at sea during their honeymoon. She helped established the building of St. Luke's in what was then country farmland with a small, growing population. The church was dedicated in 1861. A separate chapel, which had housed the Sunday School (now the church office) was built as well along with a rectory and parish hall. There is also a burial ground. Some of the neighborhood's most noteable names of the past are buried there: State Senator Louis Farrell- who served on the vestry for 50 years, the Gregg family, the Tomlinsons and General Penncock Huey who fought in the Civil War.
The original rectory and parish hall have since been replaced but the original church still stands. The church was built by renowned architect Richard Upjohn (1802-1878).
 
Today the church is home to about 100 faithful families and continues to flourish in the community

The power of Christian prayer Help me to avoid every sin
Thanks to Thee, O God, that I have risen today, To the rising of this life itself; may it be to Thine own glory, O God of every gift, and to the glory, aid Thou my soul. With the aiding of Thine own mercy, even as I clothe my body with wool, cover Thou my soul with the shadow of Thy wing. Help me to avoid every sin, and the source of every sin to forsake, and as the mist scatters on the crest of the hills, may each ill haze clear from my soul, O God.
