Location, Directions, and Where to Park
Church of the Redeemer is located at 222 S Palm Avenue in Downtown Sarasota Florida along the Sarasota bayfront, at the intersection of S Palm Ave and Ringling Blvd.
We have plenty of parking, and we even have complimentary valet parking on Sundays from 8:30 AM to 1:00 PM. Look for the valet stand located on S Palm Avenue at the covered entrance to Gillespie Hall. Additionally, we are pleased to offer ample free Sunday parking (during service hours) at the BMO Harris Bank Garage, located on McAnsh just across from the church. The parish owns a 110-space parking lot on the corner of Ringling and S Palm, just across from the church, and it is available on Saturdays and Sundays. Just look for the “Redeemer Church Parking” signs. There is plenty of public parking on the streets surrounding the church – including Palm Avenue, McAnsh, and Gulfstream Avenue.

What About My Children?
Children are always welcome at all services at Redeemer!
Children’s Chapel is held on Sundays during the 9:00 AM Mass and led by our Youth Minister. Children K-5th leave for Gillespie Hall chapel after the reading of the Gospel, and return following the Peace. Included is a retelling of the Gospel, age-appropriate homily, Creed, Prayers of the People, Confession, Absolution, and the Peace.
Sunday School: Sunday School classes, essential as families and the church partner to foster faith that sticks, take place throughout the academic year for all children from 10:10 to 10:45 on Sunday mornings. Grades K-3 meet in the Bell Tower wing, and grades 4 and 5 meet in the classrooms above Gillespie Hall. Classes are also offered during the 1PM Spanish mass.
“Redeemer Kids” bags are available in the narthex always with materials for quiet time activities – coloring pages and crayons, pipe cleaners for “creating,” small Bible story books, etc. Please help yourself! Take your artwork with you after the service, and return the bag to the basket in the narthex.
Nursery and PreK: Redeemer is blessed to have nursery care for infants through PreK. Nurseries are open every Sunday during the 9 and 11 AM masses, as well as the 1PM Spanish mass, and are specifically “well baby” spaces. Beepers are available to parents to keep contact with their little ones. All staff and volunteers who work with children and youth at Redeemer have been screened, and have completed “Safeguarding God’s Children” training.
