Third Order

IVE Third OrderThe Secular Third Order or lay order of the Family of the Incarnate Word is an association of faithful lay people, whose members, while living in the world, wish to participate in the same spirit so as to seek in the most secure and efficacious way their own Christian perfection in all the wide field of the lay vocation and in order to bring about the sanctification of all men by means of their works of apostolate.

For this reason, they desire to and commit themselves to form with the religious of the Incarnate Word one unique family, united by the same faith, the same ends, the same mission, the same charism, the same nature and the same spirit; constituting themselves thus in the prolongation of the action of the religious in the proper environments of the lay life.
