Archbishop D'Cruze said, "Today is a day of great joy for the Catholic Church in Bangladesh and for the brothers of the Holy Cross. Because eight brothers are receiving final vows for their lives today by responding to God's call to preach the Good News and they are devoting their lives to Christian service."

"Despite the challenges posed by COVID-19 and conflicts, we were able to navigate through them with flying colors. We worked tirelessly to ensure that the needs of our vulnerable brothers and sisters were met through innovative strategies such as virtual consultations, remote training, and online fundraising," said D’Rozario.
"Inspired by the Holy Spirit that Jesus Christ is the greatest teacher to give us a witness of all ages, we teachers will shape ourselves in the light of Christian values, and the beatitude will be the best inspiration and guidance of our lives," said the Archbishop Bejoy N. D’Cruze of Dhaka
