The Fr. Marco Cup is an annual tribute lacrosse event between all three levels of the St. Louis U. High and DeSmet Jesuit Lacrosse Clubs, the two Jesuit powerhouses from St. Louis, Missouri. The event honors Fr. Michael Marchlewski (Fr. Marco), who has served for many years teaching at both schools and has been a spiritual leader for both lacrosse clubs.

In keeping with the Jesuit mission, the clubs choose to be “Men for Others”, expressing through their competition the Greater Glory of God and giving back to organizations in the St. Louis area in a day filled with fellowship, fun, and great lacrosse.

The Fr. Marco Cup is the traveling prize awarded to the winner of the varsity game.

All net proceeds go directly to organizations supported. Since its inception in 2005, the event has raised more than $160,000.

Organizations supported this year:

- Loyola Academy of St. Louis - committed to helping underprivileged kids have access to a Catholic education and lacrosse.

- The Michael Sennett ‘Count on Me’ Foundation - provides scholarships, mentoring and lacrosse instruction to economically disadvantaged youth in the St. Louis area.

- St. Louis ARCwhose mission is to empower people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families to lead better lives by providing a lifetime of high-quality services, family support and advocacy
