It was on October 31, 2009 that five SSS scholastics who joined the International Preparation for Perpetual Profession Program (IP4) made their Perpetual Vows which was presided by the Very Reverend Father Fiorenzo Salvi, SSS, Superior General of the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament at Sta. Cruz Parish, Sta. Cruz, Manila, Philippines. They were Br. Mario Jose Parlingayan, SSS from the Philippines, Br. Emil Indika Rodrigo, SSS from Sri Lanka, and Brs. John Baptist Tran Dihn Thang, SSS, Dominic Mai Xuan Thoung, SSS and Joseph Nguyen Minh Toan, SSS from Vietnam.
It was a great joy for the Congregation to celebrate this event in the occasion of the Year for Priests. Let us pray for them that they will be faithful followers and servants of the Church and that they may persevere in their chosen vocation.
