SMU FIDES is a Catholic faith community consisting of Catholic students in SMU who desire to build a community centred around Jesus Christ. We have around 70 people who gather weekly for formation sessions and fellowship, and meet fortnightly for community masses as we strive to grow in our faith lives together.
Most of us are also involved in cell groups (CG), where we meet in small gender-based groups (5-7 people) weekly to journey in our faith through school together.
- Fellowship events We also organise fellowship events such as picnics, Christmas parties, Seniors’ farewell and much more! In FIDES, we spend time together not just during our events, but also experience all aspects of school together. We study together, eat together, play together, and definitely pray together!

“SMU FIDES has been my shelter, where I find rest amidst the busyness of school; a haven, where I can genuinely share in my joys and struggles; as well as my home where I walk along brothers and sisters who continually point me towards Christ!”
- Megan Ong, School of Law, Year 3
“SMU FIDES has been instrumental in helping me find my way back to Jesus, my unshakable joy amid the university struggles. FIDES is where I met my closest university friends who have taught me how to love and be loved. More than a CCA, FIDES is a loving, Christ-centred community!”
- Elizabeth Tan, School of Social Sciences, Year 3
“SMU FIDES has been my home within SMU. With FIDES I have found my closest friends and the most genuine people. Surrounded by this small community of FIDES, I found my faith again, and embarked on this slow but life-changing journey that I'd never thought I'll experience in university."
Gillian Tan LKCSB: Year 3
“SMU FIDES has been a highly essential part of my university journey and my faith life. I am truly grateful for sisters and brothers in community who constantly point me back to Christ as we all support one another on our common pursuit of living a Christ-centred life in university.”
Nicole Weers SOL: Year 4
