Where Everyone Begins – IVE Philippines

The Land Before the Construction

After starting a parish, the next step of the Institute of the Incarnate Word in the Philippines is something exciting. This next step is where everyone in the Institute begins.

Some few years ago, our Institute acquired a land where the house of formation would be built. It was like a big art canvass, ready to be painted with something beautiful. It was dotted with coconut trees and farm animals would visit the land to take some chew. Of course, one could not escape thinking what could be built there; abstract construction plans were forming on our brain and thankfully, God gave us a generous architect to help us with the construction. Of course, big plans were coming, in fact it seemed to be bigger than the building itself: future apostolates with our new neighbors but the construction of the seminary must come first.


After some years of preparation, at last the Institute has finally begun the construction of the edifice of the House of Formation situated here in the Philippines. Everything became concrete (and yes, the house is made of concrete), especially those architectural plans which looked exciting on paper and more exciting when it appeared on the land itself. Here, will be the future home of the future missionaries. We are very excited.

The first stages of the construction would be, hopefully, finished next year and so we could start moving in. For any inquiries, or for any help that you may contribute about this future house of formation, contact us or call/text us at 09398334671. Your generous gift will benefit countless priests, seminarians, future missionaries of Christ to the four corners of the world.
