Saint Mark's Directions
Driving Directions to
Saint Mark's Episcopal Church
4714 Clifton Avenue
St. Louis, MO  63109

St. Mark's Episcopal Church is on a quiet residential street in South St. Louis. Clifton Avenue is one of those special St. Louis streets that starts and stops several times.  It is not one continuous street from its starting point in the North to its ending point in the South.  Even those who know South St. Louis well would have a hard time finding St. Mark's.  For the wise, Clifton is two blocks west of Hampton off of Nottingham. We'll give everyone else driving directions from the three closest highways.

Driving Directions from U.S. 40/I-64

  1. Exit the Highway at exit 34C Hampton Ave.  If you have taken the correct exit, you are driving South down a busy, commercial street, Hampton Avenue.  (If you have taken the wrong exit, you are in the middle of Forest Park.  Turn around.)  

  2. Drive South on Hampton approximately 4 miles.  When you pass the Target store on your right at Chippewa, start looking for your next turn.  The second traffic light past Chippewa is Nottingham.  

  3. Turn right on Nottingham.  The second chance to make a right off of Nottingham is Clifton.  (The street sign is hard to find; it's on the left).  

  4. Make a right turn on Clifton.  St. Mark's is in the middle of the first block.

Driving Directions from I-44

  1. Exit the Highway at exit 286 Hampton Ave.  Go South on Hampton.  If you pass a Shell station almost immediately after turning onto Hampton, you are going the right way.  If you find yourself on a bridge over train tracks, you are going the wrong way.  Turn around at McDonalds.

  2. Drive South on Hampton approximately 3 miles.   When you pass the Target store on your right at Chippewa, start looking for your next turn.  The second traffic light past Chippewa is Nottingham.  

  3.  Turn right on Nottingham.  The second chance to make a right off of Nottingham is Clifton.  (The street sign is hard to find; it's on the left).  

  4. Make a right turn on Clifton.  In the middle of the first block is St. Mark's.

Driving Directions from I-55

North bound (you are traveling towards downtown St. Louis)

  1. Exit the Highway at exit 202A Carondelet Rd.  Turn left to go north on Carondelet.

  2. Take Carondelet to Morgan Ford. 

  3. Turn right on to Morgan Ford.  Cross the scenic River Des Peres to Germania. Imagine how this area looked in 1993 when it was flooded in the Great Flood of '93.

  4. Turn left on to Germania.  Go approximately 1 mile to an intersection with a Steak and Shake and Walgreens (Gravois.  Forget all the French you know; we pronounce it GRA-VOY). At this intersection, Germania magically becomes Hampton.  Ignore this fact and keep going. From Hampton and Gravois it is 1.5 miles to Itaska.

  5. Turn left on to Itaska.  Itaska is a narrow residential street.  Admire the charming gingerbread houses but 

  6. turn right at the first cross-street, Clifton.

  7. Take Clifton 1 1/2 blocks to St. Mark's.

South bound (you are traveling away from downtown St. Louis)

  1. Exit the Highway at exit 202B, Germania Avenue.  Turn right to go north on Germania.  Go approximately 1.7 miles to an intersection with a Steak and Shake and Walgreens (Gravois--see pronunciation note above).  At this intersection, Germania magically becomes Hampton.  Ignore this fact and keep going. From Hampton and Gravois it is 1.5 miles to Itaska.

  2. Turn left on to Itaska.  Itaska is a narrow residential street.  Admire the charming gingerbread houses but 

  3. turn right at the first cross-street, Clifton.

  4. Take Clifton 1 1/2 blocks to St. Mark's.


Some parish wags insist that simply finding us is proof of a calling. We're worth the effort. Come on by!
