live your passion for helping people
“I was surprised at the depth Dominic provides, just in his free videos.
“He gets to the heart of the matter, with so much experience compared to other ‘gurus’ I’ve seen advertised. He focuses on the fundamentals with fresh insights. He’s a gifted teacher. He focuses on what you most need to know, which is very refreshing. I also appreciate that he does not overfocus on making money like other ‘gurus’ which, for me, is a complete turn-off.”
– Lynn Kapusinski, Faith Journeys Foundation

marketing should be exciting!
Join a cohort of fellow Catholic ministries, and work through these 6 key areas together:
vision & focus
Clarify your brand message. Spell out the dream for your ministry.
Who resonates fastest with you, and why you should define them.
What are you doing? How does it serve your mission, and help people?
How are you staying in touch with people? Can you identify superfans?
Your website is the hub to your rose window. Is it cluttered, or clear?
Create a space for your fans to reinforce the lifestyle together.
how does it work?
For 3 weeks, we all meet for 1 hour online, Monday’s & Thursdays.
Get 20 minutes of theory. Then we all spend 20 minutes in silence, to draft notes. End with 20 minutes to roundtable responses, feedback, and questions.
Together, we work on our ministries live. No more procrastination.
making Catholic marketing easy
Hi, I’m Dominic de Souza, SmartCatholic’s founder. I’ve been a marketer, designer and branding specialist for 15+ years. My passion is to help Catholic ministries grow your impact, without spending thousands of dollars on advertising.
The Smart Ministry Workshop helps you refocus on your ‘zone of genius,’ so that you’re not wasting time.
“Second to none in his ability to actively listen to a client’s story, ask insightful questions, and then communicate the heart of a company’s brand beautifully.”
“Often we don’t know exactly what we are looking for, but Dominic seems to ask the right questions and give us options and a real image of the story we need to tell.”
DIRECTOR OF PAROUSIA, SPEAKER
“He worked carefully to really know and appreciate the heart of our business, using his insight to develop what we ourselves couldn’t always put into words.”
MAD MONKS COFFEE SHOP
“Dominic gave me clear, specific and objective insights I was unable to see for myself. He’s also a veritable idea-machine.”
