On June 2, 2017, 79 young women processed down the aisle at St. Jude the Apostle Church, in white gowns, each carrying a bouquet of red roses. They received their diplomas and special honors that evening from The Most Reverend Bishop Persico, President Fr. Scott Jabo, and Principal Brenda Karlinchak.
Students heard speeches from Outstanding Honor Graduate, Katie Luteran, and the Class Speaker, Bridget Riley. Each recalled memories from their years at Villa and spoke about how their class will be forever bonded. Jane Taylor, also an Honor Graduate, was the Mistress of Ceremonies for the evening.
The traditional Commencement Ball took place at Villa immediately following the graduation ceremony. The newly graduated enjoyed an evening of fun with their Villa sisters before they began the next chapter of their lives.
