The Vow Day Mass was held at the Epiphany parish in Thu Duc and presided by Fr. Provincial Vincent Pham Van Mam, SJ on the feast of St. Ignatius and the closing of the Ignatian Year which marked the 500th anniversary of the religious conversion of St Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus.

At the Mass, each novice makes the profession of vows individually in front of the Eucharist. They also receive a vow cross that they will keep for the rest of their lives.
