“In everything, we thank God for the grace and the joy of vocation and consecration within the Society of Jesus and the Church,” said Fr. Provincial Vincent Pham Van Mam, SJ, in his homily during the Mass. “Jesus Christ reminds us to dedicate our whole life to serve the people of God, especially those who are excluded and marginalized.”

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, parents, families and friends of the newly vowed scholastics could not attend the celebration. On behalf of the whole Province, Fr. Mam expressed his sincere gratitude to the parents of the new scholastics for allowing and encouraging their sons to be men of God and men for others through the Jesuit life.

Following the profession of first vows, these young men will begin three years of philosophy studies at the SJJS.

Please keep these men and all of our Jesuits in formation, as well as those discerning a possible Jesuit vocation, in your prayers.
