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.

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

” 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

“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.
