Noviciado de la Sagrada Familia

Information and Activities

After several years of moving, the Novitiate finally found its perfect haven in Tagaytay City when it opened in 1996.  However, it was formally inaugurated on April 1, 1997. The community was formed with 7 professed Sisters, and sixteen novices who were the first occupants of this newly opened Novitiate House.

The architecture of the house has a European touch seen inside and out of the edifice. Though the architecture of the entire house is amazing, it is the Chapel that captures everything. It is full of unspoken meaning depicted in art carved in every angle with its walls surrounded by the magnificence of God’s creation articulated in stained glasses. The fruitfulness of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s womb carrying not the image of the infant Jesus but the Blessed Sacrament is well-defined.  

After almost two decades since the opening of this formation house, the Sisters find tranquility knowing that this place will always be the seat of religious formation for the Province.
