Driving Directions -

St. John's Church is at 114 N. Union Ave. (between Pennington and Congress Avenues). From I-95, take the Havre de Grace exit 89. Bear right on Level Rd (MD 155) and, as you go through two traffic signals, this becomes Superior Street in a long downhill approach to the city.

As you pass under US 40, the road takes a hard right turn and becomes Juniata Street. Continue through one traffic signal and then go left on Pennington Avenue (athletic field on right, police department on left). Turn right on Union just past the library and look for the church immediately on the right. There will be ASNC signs at the turns and a banner in front of the church.

Parking is on-street and two parking lots on Pennington Avenue will be marked.
