Parking and Shuttle Service

Brown does not have a parking lot, but we are located in a residential neighborhood with ample street parking. Parking permit rules apply during the week but not on Sundays.

Continuous, complimentary shuttle service is offered Sunday mornings to and from the parking lot at Mt. Royal Elementary School, 121 McMechen Street. Parking passes are required to park at the elementary school, otherwise cars are subject to towing. Pick up a parking pass from the church Narthex on Sunday mornings, or download and print a Sunday morning parking pass here.
