Some resources that offer online examples of retreat letters include CatholicMom.com, the Good Men Project and My Domestic Church. Children, youth and adults who attend Catholic retreats hope to receive letters from parents and grandparents. On letter day, some leaders ask attendees to find a private place for reading.
Siblings, friends and anyone who wants to send love and encouragement may write retreat letters. A mother wrote to her son for his confirmation retreat that although he has always been bigger than other children his age, she believes that God made him big to hold his big heart. These sample retreat letters demonstrate some different styles of writing and different points of view.
