WHAT WE DO.
In 2009, The Our Lady of Sheshan House of Formation of the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE, from the Spanish Instituto del Verbo Encarnado), was established in Lipá, Batangas which presently include members from India, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Philippines.
Formation of future IVE priest- As a house of formation, we are the ‘training ground’ of men who are called by God to serve as his priests. They pass through the formation, from the novitiate, through the philosophical and theological studies prior to Holy Orders.
A life of prayer and penance- As a religious community, the members direct their whole being towards the praise and glory of the Creator. Life here is not merely studying, but also of prayer which is the first duty of a religious.
Mission- the seminarians are assigned with the apostolates, to further equip them with experience in pastoral activities which he will greatly use once he get assigned to a mission place, whether in a parish, with children or youth or in any needs the Church may have.
