St. Luke’s Episcopal Church offers traditional worship in a historic church in Newtown. All are welcome to attend.
The congregation of St. Luke’s is a vital and growing family in Christ offering many programs including: Sunday School, Adult and Youth Choirs, Choir Camp, Vacation Bible School, Prayer Shawl Ministry, and the Christmas Charity Bazaar which donates all proceeds to area charities. St. Luke’s also offers a Food Pantry to those in need.
In April St. Luke’s pastor Fr. Ernest Curtin retired after many years of faithful service. The Parish is looking forward to celebrating his retirement in person in October.
In May, The Rev. Trey Kennedy joined St. Luke’s as interim priest-in-charge. Trey grew up as an Episcopalian and received his call to ordained ministry at a young age.
After graduating from St. John’s College in Annapolis, Maryland, he served as an AmeriCorps member in Washington, D.C. before beginning seminary at the School of Theology at the University of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
Trey returned to his native Alabama where he led three different parishes before moving to Philadelphia. It has been his goal to serve in the Diocese of Pennsylvania, and he is excited about the opportunity God has provided him to do so.
Come visit us for a Sunday service at 8:00am (no music) or 10:00am (choir and traditional hymns). We also have a Healing Mass at 10:00am on Wednesdays.

Whether you sing or knit, would like to usher or teach, or simply want to celebrate the Eucharist in the company of caring people, St. Luke’s welcomes you.
“We are more of what we are called to be when we gather together to worship the living Lord Jesus Christ.”
