Access for Persons with Special Needs

The parking lot directly behind the church provides handicap parking as well as a grade-level entrance to the elevator to the Nave and Auditorium.

The easiest way to enter Saint Luke’s Church is through the doors on Chestnut Street (Entering through the Bell Tower).  This entry point requires two steps up.  For persons requiring completely flat surfaces, please park in the lot behind the church by following ‘Handicap Parking’ signs down 6th Street and into the alley behind the church.  At the base of this lot is an elevator which can take you directly to the Church Sanctuary (Press ‘N’ in Elevator for ‘Nave’) or the Auditorium (Press ‘A’).  A wheelchair is kept in the elevator lobby for those who wish to use it to get to the Nave more easily.  


Restroom Access for Persons with Special Needs:  There is a single use bathroom in the area behind the blue-backed altar dedicated to the Blessed Mother on your left as you are looking forward in the Church.  You may go back through the door immediately to the right of that Altar, take a left and find the restroom there.  Also, larger facilities are located on the first floor, accessed by going down to the lowest level in the elevator (‘LL’), taking a right, and walking up the ramp to find mens and ladies restrooms on the right by a water fountain.

Completely accessible bathrooms on the Nave level are presently being installed and will be available for use in the Spring of 2017.

 Please ask our Ushers to show you to the restrooms at any time during our services and any time during your visit with us.
