Dear Friends,

To both celebrate and commemorate the canonizations of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII on April 27, 2014, I am pleased to announce the creation of the Saints John Paul II and John XXIII Scholarship Fund at DSPT.

At the center of our mission as a school is the urgency to present the Catholic tradition in its integrity to our contemporary world. This was also the fundamental concern of these extraordinary popes.

It is this outward engagement with the modern world through integrating philosophical and theological study according to the mind and method of St. Thomas Aquinas that is the hallmark of the education we provide at DSPT. The reconciliation of the world with the truth of the Gospel is the work to which we invite each of our students.

I deeply appreciate your generous contributions in partnering with us to help implement the vision for Catholic education conveyed to us by Saints John Paul II and John XXIII. I encourage you to help us continue our work by making a gift today in their honor. Your gifts will directly support our lay and religious students, many of whom have discerned a teaching vocation.

In Christ,

Rev. Michael Sweeney, OP

Both saints together taught us that we will not evangelize our modern world by condemning it or disparaging it or by engaging it politically. Instead, we will touch the hearts and minds of our contemporaries by revealing to them their identity and profound dignity as persons in the “unique and unrepeatable human reality” that each of them manifests in all of the concreteness of his or her life as “friend of God and heir to eternal glory.”
