1954, 19 August: The noviciate is opened.
1958: With much difficulty, three other monks of Tilburg were admitted at the beginning of 1958. The Definitory decided to make the canonical erection in May. The indult was granted on 24 May, but it was only in December that the father immediate received permission to travel to Java, to preside at the erection and the first election, which was held on 27 December. Dom Bavo was elected.
