Why Handwritten Letters?
What is the most valuable letter you've ever received? How did it make you feel?
A letter can be so much more than just words on a page. A letter, when written with heart, can have an incredible impact. A letter lets the recipient know they are valued and that they are worth so much more than all of the time and thought that went into writing it.
This is the idea behind our growing collection of Letters to Women.
Every week, The Catholic Woman will feature a handwritten a letter of encouragement written by a Catholic woman. In her letter, she will share a bit of her story and unique insight with us. We also will share an interview with her, so that you can get a greater glimpse into the life of this particular Catholic woman and how she lives her faith.
With the same spirit, we also release mini-documentaries every three months that feature the lives of inspiring Catholic women, of all backgrounds, and explore how their Catholic faith converges with their lives.
Our goal is simple. We're inviting you to cherish your unique identity as an individual, as a member of the sisterhood of Catholic women and as a member of the Church. To learn more about our specific mission and vision, click here to read about who we are.
Ultimately, we want you to know that you are welcome here, you are valued and you belong here.
Together, by sharing our stories, by valuing our differences and by building each other up, we can have an incredible impact on our fellow Catholic sisters-in-Christ and on the future of the Church.
