St. Joseph’s Altar – March 17, 2019

St. Ambrose Parish on the Hill invites everyone to the St. Joseph Altar on Sunday, March 17, 2019.  There will be a Mass in Italian in St. Ambrose Church at 11:00 a.m., followed by a short procession to the School Building, just up the block.  The Mass will last about one hour, so the festivities in the school will begin around 12:30 p.m.

There will be two altars set up, one in the cafeteria, and one in the school.  They will be blessed By Monsignor Vincent Bommarito, Pastor of St. Ambrose. Two buffet lines will be opened at that time, one in the cafeteria and one in the gym, and each will serve generous samplings of delicious food from the local restaurants.

A thoughtful donation is requested for the buffet, but admission to the event is free.  The Altars will have many baked goods, Italian specialties, fruits, vegetables, breads, and other items for sale, from 12:30 p.m. until close, which will be around

3:30 p.m.  All the money raised during the day will go to St. Ambrose School Tuition Assistance to help families facing financial hardships keep their children in the school.

St. Ambrose Parish is located at 5130 Wilson Avenue on the Hill.  Come and enjoy this wonderful Italian tradition! And this year, since the event is on St. Patrick’s Day, our color will be green.  Don’t miss this celebration.

New Construction Coming to The Hill

(Jan 15, 2019)

McBride Homes, Missouri’s largest home builder, is under contract for a new development located in The Hill neighborhood of St. Louis City. Phase 1 will include 58 homesites. 

The property is located off Bischoff Avenue and Hereford Street. 

“We are happy to announce that we are bringing new construction of single family homes to The Hill,” said John F. Eilermann Jr., CEO and Chairman of McBride Homes. “We are thrilled to be a part of such an exciting development with the pent-up demand in the area.”

The new McBride community, The Manors at La Collina, will include 58 single family homes. 

The community will offer a new top-of-the-line single family home product with brick fronts reminiscent of The Hill’s traditional neighborhood streetscape, plus rear entry one and two car detached garages with rear entry alley access.

“Our phones are already ringing off the hook and we are adding more people to the waiting list everyday,” stated Eilermann. “A prime Hill location and single family homes with great value make this community one buyers won’t want to miss.”

McBride Homes is partnering with the site developer, Draper and Kramer, to develop the site. McBride is taking the lead on the single family homes, while Draper and Kramer is developing an apartment complex on the adjacent property.

The neighborhood is expected to open for information in Summer 2019.

McBride Homes, celebrating over 73 years of building, offers homes in over 40 communities in metro St. Louis. McBride is based in Chesterfield and is the largest homebuilder in St. Louis and the state of Missouri. The company is currently ranked as the 41stlargest privately owned builder in the country and is 64th largest overall.
