The Institute of the Incarnate Word was founded in San Rafael, Argentina on March 25, 1984 by Fr. Carlos Miguel Buela.

The male branch is called the Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE) and the female branch is called the Institute of the Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matara (SSVM). Currently the IVE has about 900 members (priests, brothers, seminarians and minor seminarians) and the SSVM has about 1,000.

With the grace of God we seek to evangelize all men. At its foundation, our mission has a two-fold characterization. On one hand, we seek the glory of God and the salvation of souls—our own and others—especially by practicing those virtues that make us participate more in the humbling of Christ himself. On the other hand, we commit all our strength to inculturate the Gospel, that is to say, to extend the Incarnation “to all men, in the whole man, and in all of the manifestations of man.”
