May Crowning – A Time Honored Tradition at SHV
On Friday, May 13th under a beautiful blue sky, the three PreK and Kindergarten classes lead the annual May Crowning in honor of the Blessed Mother. The ceremony was held on the front lawn of the school. This celebration was held on a school day this year so the other younger classes could watch and join the older students in praying a decade of the rosary. Many parents and grandparents joined us for the event.
Dining with Donors at Carnivore
Treat your family to dinner from a Hill restaurant that has been ranked among the best spots to dine in St. Louis since it opened in 2018! Carnivore STL, located at 5257 Shaw Avenue and Edwards Street will host our February Dining with Donors on Wednesday, May 18th. In February we were scheduled to have our Dining with Donors at Carnivore, but a sleet storm that afternoon closed the resturant.
The owners Joe and Keri Smugala along with Mike and Casie Lutker (who also own The Pit Spot next door to Sacred Heart Villa) consider Carnivore to be a classic steak house with a flair for Italian dishes and contemporary comfort food. Carnivore opens at 5PM, though you can place an order online anytime during the day or even the day before for curbside or pick up orders.
In addition to their many menu items, they offer family-style meals for 2 or 4 people and have a kid's menu with several selections. Do you love a good dessert? Save room for their cheesecake and chocolate cake with house made sauces. When ordering you do not need to mention Sacred Heart Villa because Carnivore is donating a portion of the whole evening’s orders to us.

When you dine with our donors, you help support local businesses as well as The Villa. So far this school year we have raised $3,993. We greatly appreciate the generosity of our families and these restaurant owners who value the exceptional education opportunities Villa offers to the community.
