Handicapped Access

Handicapped-accessible parking is available in our Mulberry St. lot, and a ramp leads from the lot, through the courtyard, to the lower-level entrance. Our new elevator (just inside the door) leads to our church (Atrium Level), Parish Hall (Main Level), and auditorium (Upper Level).

A handicapped-accessible restroom is in the Parish Hall.

Also, a ramp is available from Chestnut St. to our main entrance (in the glass-walled atrium).


St. John’s has a small parking lot on Mulberry Street. Curbside parking is also possible.

St. John’s has made arrangements with the Lancaster Parking Authority to provide parking for St. John’s at the Water Street Parking Garage (on Water Street, between West Chestnut and Walnut Streets). If you enter the garage between 7:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Sundays mornings, you receive 3 hours of free parking. Just take a ticket when you enter and place it in the slot when you exit. No payment will be required.

We encourage you to use the Water Street Parking Garage in lieu of the private lot on West Chestnut Street, which is for the residents of the Stevens School apartments. In addition, if you are able-bodied, we encourage you to use the Water Street Parking Garage to save spots in our church parking for those with mobility challenges. Thank you.
