Location and Parking:
The Cathedral is located at 5200 N. Charles Street in Baltimore. When approaching from the south, the driveway is located on your left before you pass the building. From the north, the entrance is on your right after you have passed the Cathedral. Please consult the map below to locate specific buildings or chapels on campus.
- The Cathedral of Mary Our Queen does have a number of accessible parking spaces around the church, Parish Center, and school.
- To enter the church in a wheelchair, park on the south side of the Cathedral and use the ramp to enter.
- There is an accessible single-user restroom in the narthex of the church (which is all the way in the back of the church, as you face the altar). The restroom is on the right of the narthex as you face the altar. It is large enough to fit a wheelchair.
- If possible to bring your own wheelchair, that is best. We do have a very limited number of autonomous manual chairs available to borrow, if the need arises. See an usher when you arrive at church to inquire.
- The main part of the church (the nave) is accessible, and there are spots for wheelchairs at the end of the pews in the front. The Blessed Sacrament Chapel and the Joseph Chapel are also easily accessible in a wheelchair.
- If you would like to visit the Lady Chapel, or if you are going to the upper or lower sanctuary, there is a ramp inside the church (on the south side, near the Memorial Chapel) to access both those locations. The ramp is steep, though, so some individuals in wheelchairs have had a more challenging time with that ramp.
- If you are in need of a hearing device, we do have a limited number of those available (the type that is placed over your ear, connected to a box that you hold). Please see a sacristan before Mass to inquire. The sacristans will be in the sacristy, which is located on the north side of the church (to the right of the main altar as you face it).
- If you prefer to avoid loud noise, there are thin black vertical speakers on many of the columns in the main part of Cathedral. We recommend sitting on the inside of the pews (close to the center aisle), and in the back.
- If you wish to avoid bright light, the Cathedral is often dim. Sitting in the back will also help, as it is far from the lights in the sanctuary.
- Incense is not often used at Cathedral, but when it is, it is almost always used in the sanctuary. We recommend not sitting in the first 10-15 pews, to avoid any incense. It is rare that clergy will process in or recess out with incense, but if they do, it would be in the center aisle. If you have questions about incense use at a particular larger Mass (i.e. Chrism Mass, etc.), please feel free to contact us.
- For any more questions about accessibility, please contact us below. Thank you for coming to the Cathedral!
