Institute of the Incarnate Word in the Philippines

Open wide to Christ the doors of Asia!

WHAT IS SHESHAN HOUSE OF FORMATION?

The Our Lady of Sheshan House of Formation is the place where Asian vocation to our Institute pursue their necessary studies as members of our Religious Family and prior to their ordination to the priesthood.  As a religious community, our life of studies is commingled with a life of prayer, work and apostolate. These equip the future priests of our Institute with necessary tools to set out to their future missionary adventure, proclaiming the Gospel to all the nations and cultures, transforming and uplifting mankind with the grace of God, bringing all souls towards their glory with their Savior.

With more than 400 members, we are working in 40 countries in  five continents, among which we are present in, Taiwan, Hong Kong and the Philippines which  comprise the Province of Our Lady of Sheshan.

“We want to be another Incarnation of the Word so as to incarnate Him in all humanity.”

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.
