ICPE Mission Priests
With the ICPE Mission growing and expanding in many countries, it was a desire in the hearts of the founders Anna and Mario, to have priests who share the same spirituality and to be an integral part of the community. The vision and prayer on their hearts was for priests who share the same call of a deep relationship with Jesus and a passion to evangelise, supporting the community in all its liturgical requirements and traveling with mission teams to different parts of the world.
Since then, Priests and Seminarians have become a vital part in the ICPE Mission. In 2010 the first ICPE missionary priest was ordained and in the following years two more priests having completed their studies at the Pontifical Urbaniana University in Rome became part of the fraternity.
The priests follow the spirituality of the community which is Ignatian and Charismatic while responding radically to the call of evangelisation - leading people to a personal encounter with Jesus, through the sacraments, retreats, recollections, counselling, formation programs, seminars etc.
In September 2014, taking a big step forward the first ICPE Priests formation house was established. Four seminarians: two from India and one each from Nigeria and the Unites States have begun their formation at the Manresa House in the city of Wellington in New Zealand.
Plans are underway for the Priests of the ICPE Mission to form a Society of Apostolic Life serving the Church and the ICPE Mission worldwide.
