Welcome to SmartCatholics

Let's be smart Catholics together!


What is SmartCatholics?

Watch the recent interview!


Modern Catholics are tired of feeling like bystanders, instead of first-responders! SmartCatholics helps us regroup and make friends. Join a community of all ages looking to be smart, magnetic Catholics.

We are...

Free of ads, trolls, & toxicity

We don’t track you, manipulate news, or sell data. Join a friendly community center built for Catholics, by Catholics!

Supporting Pope Francis

We are grateful for the gift of our Holy Father. We work to follow his spiritual guidance for modern Catholics.

A culture of kindness

The kingdom of God should build up and inspire. Discover new friends to enrich your faith, and make life better! 

Catholic brands we love:

Founder & Host

Dominic de Souza is your founder and host, a young dad with a small family and a smaller corgi, passionate about all things Catholic, watching movies, and reading the mystics.  

Why you should join this community:

We need somewhere online that's ours, where we can 

  • Uplift and inspire each other, and make new friends
  • Swap stories and ideas (not just advice!) 
  • Be free of toxicity, trolls, and ads. (Bye bye, Facebook. We love you, but...)

Dip in and out of discussions whenever you want! But most exciting is this - the veterans and new voices that you meet in the events are sticking around. They'll host group chats, share tips, and accompany your journey.

We need more than just information. We need insights we can trust. We need friendship to help us live lives of hope and meaning.

Code of Conduct

1. Commit to respect and kindness

I understand that respect and kindness build trust. Trust is needed so that everyone can thrive and discover their personal best.

2. Protect my community

I will build the community I want to be a part of, one conversation at a time. I will champion the needs of others, while striving to keep my activities welcoming to everyone.

3. Be my own last line of defense

I will help SmartCatholics keep me safe. I will be responsible with my activities, personal information, and conduct.

Read the full code of conduct here. Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy.

Our community exists for a clear goal: unity, friendship, and formation. 

Please don't enter if you reject Pope Francis and the 2nd Vatican Council, thrive on impending apocalyptic prophecies, polarised politics, and constant argument. 

Offenders are warned and/or removed. 

See you inside!
