Fr. Marco Cup


The 16th annual Fr Marco Cup

April 18, 2020 - NOW POSTPONED

Hosted by SLUH - stay tuned for further updates

The Fr. Marco Cup is an annual tribute lacrosse event between all three levels of the De Smet and St. Louis U. High 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 $200,000.

Game times:      Freshman at 10 AM   -    JV at 12 PM   -    Varsity at  2 PM

Mass: Celebrated in the SLUH chapel approx. 20-30 minutes following Varsity game ~ 4:30 PM
