February 16, 2018
By Deb Daley

Mercy got in the spirit of the Winter Olympics with its very own event on Friday, Feb. 16.  The tradition, which takes place every four years, is a unique way to recognize the efforts of athletes worldwide and a way for students to have some fun too. Homeroom classes represented nations.   

Activities included an Opening Ceremony complete with a Parade of Athletes and nations, the Olympic Oath, Prayer and lighting of the torch by a special torch bearer, Sr. Jeanne O’Rourke, RSM.  Then the games began!

Games included :Shots on goal (hockey), speed skating on carpet squares, pairs skating with carpet squares, four-person bobsledding on scooters, two-Person bobsledding on scooters, skeleton on scooters, luge on scooters, biathlon on carpet squares with tossing at targets, moguls on carpet squares with jumps, and cross-country skiing on carpet squares.
