come, let’s reason together.

The online community for Catholic millennials, creators, and learners who want faithful conversations that are unafraid of doubts and questions. Together, let’s get smarter.

SmartCatholics

Join a forefront unafraid of renewal in Catholic thinking and community.

And we’re just getting started.

Learn

Most Catholic influencers keep repeating messages the Church no longer shares. Support new podcasts, join groups, and start courses on Scripture, Catechism, social issues, and more.

Connect

Meet people who think like you, and believe in rediscovering the Catholic faith. We’re building a home for new voices, teachers, and faithful Catholics tired of toxicity in the Church.

Share

Share what you think, because you matter. With so much to learn from each other, we’re getting smarter together. We’re creating and supporting the content that should exist.

“The spirit of the world does not want a community: it wants a mob, thoughtless, without freedom…

“It treats us as though we lack the ability to think for ourselves; it treats us like people who are not free. We must ask the Lord for the grace of intelligence, to avoid weak and restricted thought, thoughts beyond personal preference. The Holy Spirit gives us this gift: the intelligence to understand.” 

Pope Francis, CNA

How it works

Learn from leaders who are fearlessly faithful to the Holy Father & the Church

Our amazing friends at WherePeterIs pioneered faithful, pro-Pope Francis journalism. SmartCatholics follows in their footsteps by helping writers, teachers, and creators start ministries and take confident leadership.

And then we bring them together in a free, friendly community.

Why members love SmartCatholics

"It’s not just faithfulness to Pope Francis that makes SmartCatholics special.

“It’s a willingness to see beyond the very rigid/conservative Catholic opinion of EWTN, the Bioethics Center, First Things, Catholic Answers. They have defined RealCatholicism(tm) for way too long. And Francis is calling us to see beyond that. The conversation we had today would never happen at any of those other sources, Yet it’s fully orthodox, valid, and a positive contribution to the ongoing issue. That’s what SC brings to the table.”

Paul Fahey, Host of Pope Francis Generation

‘God bless the team for establishing this refuge from the storm and also for keeping it peaceful. Since I joined a year or so ago, there have been a couple of new members who have tried to disrupt our discussions and turn them into arguments. Both Dominic and Mike Lewis have very kindly and firmly ushered them out, to the great relief of the rest of us.” – Sr Gabriela

The reason why I joined was just so I can scroll a newsfeed and it being beautiful and Catholic rather than Facebook which can be negative or secular. I want to be looking and scrolling something when I’m free that will uplift me. I have now talked with a couple people and it’s super cool being able to network with others.” –  Cassie S.

Smart Catholics are faithful Catholics. It’s important to me to be faithful to the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church founded by Jesus Christ… He taught us how to be smart Catholics in the first place! If it was important to Him, it should be important to us.” Tiffany B.

“Being a part of SmartCatholics is my very FAVORITE social media hangout, and I… thank all those who are helping in so many ways! I love that SmartCatholics is global so that I can make friends with other Catholics around the world.” – Beth S.

I am impressed by the quality and range of discussion and the app is quite versatile and user-friendly. Keep going; this is a contemporary way to engage Catholics to come forward! Awesome work!” – Adam P.

” In my quest to grow in my faith and practice I have found one particular phrase tumbles off my lips over and over again.  “Wait!  How did I not know that???!!”  But that is part of the beauty and joy of being a smart Catholic.  No matter our age, stage of life, or closeness to sainthood we will always have questions… Being a smart Catholic means engaging our Catholic communities, the Church’s teachings, the help of the saints and our Holy Mother, and the gifts of the Holy Trinity to become even smarter Catholics.” – Nicole S.

“I’ve been doing a ton of poking around on SmartCatholics today and this is what I see. We are all united in Christ with many different abilities that make this platform beautiful. We have the recruiters, prayer warriors, counselors, technicians, comforters, teachers, and students. Many different branches coming and going back to the main source just like the Celtic symbol… Dominic, you have created something beautiful.” – Melinda K

“Shout out to everyone. I just love to be at SmartCatholics. Thank you all. So inspired of you.” – Hermelyn C.

“I wanted to see what SmartCatholics was about, as I love being Catholic and all about Catholicism. I was actually surprised at the warmth and spirituality of the messages and people on it. It’s keeping me closer to God. I used to always go on Facebook, but now it’s very shallow compared to SC. So I think it’s providence me being on SC! It’s what I’ve been searching for, and has brought me home!” – Paola E.

“Praise God! A superb effort and results Dominic and team! Well done! God bless you all abundantly and this ministry!” – Pravina S.
