The Dads of Grads organization, or DOGs, is a group of fathers of Bellarmine graduates who enjoy staying connected to the Bellarmine community and each other. Our mission is to provide a forum for dads to stay involved with and support the Christian, social and developmental activities of the Bellarmine community. We are a resource to the Bellarmine community and solicit your ideas for activities that will benefit the Bellarmine community.

The DOGs organize and/or participate in several events throughout the year, such as the Dads Retreat in January, a Memorial Mass, as well as an event with AMEN (mothers of Bell grads), and more!

To be eligible, you must be the dad of at least one Bellarmine alumnus. Have a son(s) still at BCP or more to come through? That's OK. You are welcome to join DOGs once your first son graduates.
