August 2009. The Institute of the Incarnate Word established the Houses of Formation in Lipa City, Philippines for Asian Vocations. They began with a small rented house in a suburb but succeeding years saw an increasing number of vocations. The house became to small to house these vocations coming from various Asian countries. In the year 2011, the Institute acquired a land in a tranquil rural baranggay. On August 2013, the construction to house the future missionary priests began. 

Last March 2014, the Archbishop of Lipa, Most. Rev. Ramón C. Argüelles, DD blessed the first building, the priests’ dormitory. The priest-formators and the seminarians have moved in to the new compound, but the project is not yet completed.

Be a Missionary by Helping the Missionaries!

Your contribution to the building of the
Major House of Formation 
will be your contribution
to the Evangelization efforts in the Church in Asia.

Just as in the first millennium the Cross was planted on the soil of Europe,
and in the second on that of the Americas and Africa,
we can pray that in the Third Christian Millennium
a great harvest of faith will be reaped
in this vast and vital Continent, Asia. (St. John Paul the Great)

Since the commencement of this project in 2013, we have turned to St. Joseph, the Spouse of Mary for his heavenly intercession. Join us in praying the 30-day prayer to St. Joseph. You may begin it at a date of your choice but don’t forget to tell us of this very important contribution!

Ever blessed and glorious Joseph, kind and loving father, and helpful friend of all in sorrow! You are the good father and protector of orphans, the defender of the defenseless, the patron of those in need and sorrow. Look kindly on my request. My sins have drawn down on me the just displeasure of my God, and so I am surrounded with unhappiness. To you, loving guardian of the Family of Nazareth, do I go for help and protection.
Listen, then, I beg you, with fatherly concern, to my earnest prayers, and obtain for me the favors I ask.

I ask it by the infinite mercy of the eternal Son of God, which moved Him to take our nature and to be born into this world of sorrow.

I ask it by the weariness and suffering you endured when you found no shelter at the inn of Bethlehem for the holy Virgin, nor a house where the Son of God could be born. Then, being everywhere refused, you had to allow the Queen of Heaven to give birth to the world’s Redeemer in a cave.

I ask it by that painful torture you felt at the prophecy of holy Simeon, which declared the Child Jesus and His holy Mother future victims of our sins and of their great love for us.

I ask it through your sorrow and pain of soul when the angel declared to you that the life of the Child Jesus was sought by His enemies. From their evil plan you had to flee with Him and His Blessed Mother to Egypt. I ask it by all the suffering, weariness, and labors of that long and dangerous journey.

I ask it by all your care to protect the Sacred Child and His Immaculate Mother during your second journey, when you were ordered to return to your own country. I ask it by your peaceful life in Nazareth where you met with so many joys and sorrows.

I ask it by your great distress when the adorable Child was lost to you and His Mother for three days. I ask it by your joy at finding Him in the Temple, and by the comfort you found at Nazareth, while living in the company of the Child Jesus. I ask it by the wonderful submission He showed in His obedience to you.

I ask it by the perfect love and conformity you showed in accepting the Divine order to depart from this life, and from the company of Jesus and Mary. I ask it by the joy which filled your soul, when the Redeemer of the world, triumphant over death and hell, entered into the possession of His kingdom and led you into it with special honors.

I ask it through Mary’s glorious Assumption, and through that endless happiness you have with her in the presence of God.

O good father! I beg you, by all your sufferings, sorrows, and joys, to hear me and obtain for me what I ask.

For the spiritual and material needs of the Major Houses of Formation in Lipa, especially for their construction projects.

Obtain for all those who have asked my prayers everything that is useful to them in the plan of God. Finally, my dear patron and father, be with me and all who are dear to me in our last moments, that we may eternally sing the praises of Jesus, Mary and Joseph.[/fusion_modal][/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]
