Saint Francis de Sales Oratory, located in South Saint Louis, MO, was established in 1868, and is still a treasured gemstone in the Archdiocese of Saint Louis. Built in 1908, it formerly served as the church for the auxiliary bishop of the archdiocese. because it is the second largest church in saint Louis, it is given the nickname "the Cathedral of South Saint Louis". This beautiful Neo-Gothic church, currently run by the Institute of Christ the King, is attracting hundreds of people and more and more faithful attend the beautiful liturgies the church holds.

Mr. William C. Heyer is the architect assigned to the restoration of the Shrine of Christ the King Sovereign Priest. He graduated summa cum laude from Pratt Institute in New York City, and after apprenticing with Thomas Gordon Smith, founder of the classical architecture program at the University of Notre Dame, obtained his Master's degree from the same university, having conducted part of his graduate work in Rome. He has worked in classical studios in New York City, Washington D.C., and in 2002 founded his own classical architecture studies in Columbus. Mr Heyer has published in Sacred Architecture Journal, Period Home Magazine, Culture Wars magazine, as well as The Latin Mass magazine. He is chairman of Una Voce Columbus.
