Dominican School of Philosophy and Theology

Saint Dominic Campaign

Help us prepare for an unusual academic year.

Join our Novena

Join us later this month in praying a novena for our students, faculty, and staff leading up to the first day of classes. This will be the first time ever that we have brought our entire DSPT community of students, faculty, staff, and supporters together in prayer with a novena. Register now and we will begin on August 31st, sending you daily recorded prayers led by members of our community. 

Special Event

Those of you who make a gift during this appeal will be invited to an exclusive invitation-only DSPT presentation on Mary and the Rosary on the feast day of Our Lady of the Rosary on October 7th.

Support Us

As we begin a new and unusual academic year at the DSPT, we are preparing for the realities of these difficult times. DSPT’s current greatest need is to support our students in their vocations so that they may go on to become beacons of light within their parishes, families, and schools. Please consider making a gift today to the DSPT.

of human and Christian life, such as those concerned with basic moral principles (freedom, responsibility, intentionality, and the relation between who we are and what we do), as well as the fundamental principles of Christology: just who really is Jesus Christ in relation to God and to us.
