Outside, Sisters were making their way
to the concession stand ready to fill the
coolers and heaters with all of the food.
Up on the beach, the calming sounds
of the ocean waves were soothing to the
surfers lining the beach, ready to get into
the water.” Sara, Caitlin, and Kelly began
volunteering at Villa Maria by-the-Sea
two years ago. Both of those wonderful
years they were able to experience all
of the amazing people who have cre-
ated memories that will last a lifetime.
“Nuns Beach is truly a heavenly place
on earth,” they said. “The Sisters always
thank us for helping out, but the truth is
they are the ones who have helped us to
see the beauty in service and dedication
to a spectacular event. We are looking
forward to spending many more brisk
September weekends at Villa Maria by-
the-Sea.”

I
owe a great debt to Immaculata University
for the life-changing values and academic
habits I formed as a student that have pro-
vided a foundation for my life and my career.
The University’s faculty inspired and challenged
me with their common goal to develop and
encourage excellent women; the friendships
formed during my college days have sustained
me throughout my life. I graduated from
Immaculata thinking that I could do any-
thing and be just about anyone I wanted to be.
Remembering the University now in our will
is one way in which my husband, John, and I
recognize the University’s quality and express
our hope for its future.
