Mercy-Warrior Activities Week

The idea behind the Joplin Area Catholic Schools’ Mercy-Warrior Activities Week stemmed from the need to improve and streamline fundraising efforts for organizations in all three schools, St. Mary’s, St. Peter’s and McAuley Catholic.

The Sisters of Mercy were founded on September 24, 1827, when Catherine McAuley first opened the House of Mercy in Ireland and dedicated it to Our Lady of Mercy. To commemorate this auspicious occasion, the Sisters of Mercy, our JACS system, and others around the world celebrate Mercy Day every year on September 24th. Additionally, Founders Day, celebrated on October 4th, is the date on which the Sisters of Mercy began Catholic education in Joplin in 1885.  To commemorate these two historical dates, Mercy-Warrior Activities Week will be held yearly from September 24th to October 4th. Mercy Hospital is the presenting sponsor of the event.

Beginning on Saturday, September 24th, St. Mary’s Home and School will kick off this exciting and fun week with a Cornhole tournament on the campus of St. Mary’s.

The events for the week include a meal on Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday at McAuley Catholic. Meals are $5 per person and begin at 5:30 p.m. A variety of activities will occur throughout the week and include:

Date Activity Organization in charge Location 
Sat. Sept. 24 Cornhole Tournament St. Mary’s Home/School St. Mary’s Campus 
Sun. Sept. 25 Dodgeball Tournament McAuley Baseball McAuley Campus 
Mon. Sept 26 JACS Staff Cookoff JACS Faculty McAuley Campus
Tues. Sept. 27 Take and Bake Meals – Volleyball Home Game    McAuley Campus
Thurs. Sept. 29 Alumni Golf Tourney McAuley Golf Briarbrook
Fri. Sept. 30 Trivia Night JACS Booster Club McAuley Campus
Sat. Oct. 1 Send Me Back Saturday Mixer JACS Alumni Relations McAuley Campus

All proceeds from each event will benefit the sponsoring organization listed.

In addition to the exciting week of activities, our students and families are seeking business sponsorships from September 1 through September 16. These sponsorship opportunities can be found here.

Your generous donation will help a number of activities and organizations eliminate the need to have as many small fundraisers throughout the remainder of the year.
