Mayor Francis G. Slay presented the Mayor’s Spirit of St. Louis Award to Cfx ad agency and Marian Middle School today in recognition of their revitalization of the former Holy Family Catholic church and school.
Founded in 1898, Holy Family parish was closed by the Archdiocese of St. Louis in 2005. In March 2006, Cfx owners Chris and Megan Frank purchased the former church located at 3221 Oak Hill Ave. in the Tower Grove neighborhood and relocated their company from Rock Hill. The entire church from altar to choir loft now serves as state-of-the-art creative office space for the full-service advertising agency.
Headed by President Maureen A Herrmann, Marian Middle School – a Catholic middle school serving approximately 70 economically disadvantaged girls to advance them to college prep high schools and beyond – upgraded the adjacent former parish school into a wireless learning environment with a culinary arts center and other programs serving the girls and their families.
The Mayor’s Spirit of St. Louis Award recognizes businesses that make major expansions or improvements to their existing locatiuons, open or relocate to the City, and certain major City projects. The Spirit Award program is administered by the St. Louis Development Corporation (SLDC), the economic development agency for the City of St. Louis.

I wanted to let you know that I filled out the survey but there was not enough space for all my comments…. a few more are below. Thank you for everything, it was a pleasure to work with you. I will be referring anyone I know having a wedding in St Louis!
- service at the wedding was impeccable. The staff was professional, polite and very available to anyone who needed anything. And they worked their butts off all night. Very impressive and appreciative. I received multiple comments from my guests about how great the service was. I noticed that they also paid special attention to Justin and I and our entire bridal party. It was that little extra that made all the difference. One of the staff members overheard me say that I needed some water (I was talking to a guest) and next thing I know, the staff member had water for me. Extremely nice.
- you already know how great the Palladium is but again, I received TONS of compliments on what an awesome venue it is. I obviously agree!
- And the food….still receiving compliments on how delicious the food was. I literally didn’t hear ONE complaint about the dinner. People are always so particular about the food and people loved every bite.
I really cant thank you enough – I thought the reception was amazing and that is thanks to you guys. I am being 100% honest that I don’t think I could have asked for a more perfect reception. THANK YOU!
I am sure you already have video of the Palladium but our highlight clip turned out very nice and I think it shows some nice clips of the Palladium and how much fun we had there - http://vimeo.com/27051054 I am still waiting on the photos from the photographer but I will send you any good ones of the Palladium.
