The Gray House is named after C. Vincent Gray, the first African American Marianist in the St. Louis Province of the Society of Mary. Brother Gray taught at McBride High School, Vianney High School and St. Mary’s University. Vincent Gray Academy, a school for disadvantaged youth in East St. Louis, was named in his honor. He died in 1967 at the age of 37.

The House Crest

The cross and the M at the top of the crest represent our Marianist/Catholic identity. The open book with the initials V G represents Vincent Gray and his scholarly qualities. The white background on the book signifies three of Brother Gray’s core values: truth, peace and spiritual strength. The black scales on the gray background represent the balance of justice. The two red stars on the banner stand for hope and promise. The three red pillars at the bottom of the crest represent the physical strength and foundation of the house. The Latin phrase “Officium, Justitia, Pax” means Service, Justice and Peace.
