At DSPT our classrooms are filled with Dominicans and religious from other orders as well as lay men and women. The education we provide fundamentally integrates philosophy and theology so that our students will be equipped to bring the Good News to the culture today.
The Alemany Awards Benefit Gala is the principal annual fundraising event of the Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology (DSPT), a member school of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU). At this special event we honor men and women for their lives of Christian service while raising money to support DSPT and our mission to prepare men and women for academic and apostolic vocations. See a list of past Alemany Awardees.
The Alemany Award is named after San Francisco’s first Archbishop – Joseph Sadoc Alemany, a Spanish Dominican missionary whose life and work had a tremendous impact on the Church and society. Among many other notable works, Alemany helped to found the Western Dominican Province, of which DSPT is an apostolate.
