Fr Jerry Orbos SVD writes a regular Sunday column, “Moments” in the Philippine Daily Inquirer. Through his talks, retreats, print and media apostolate, Father Jerry reminds everyone that God speaks to us in the most ordinary moments of our lives. He calls this “moments spirituality” — every moment is filled with God’s presence and grace.
His personal stories, anecdotes, reflections, and bits of humour–in his 39 years of priesthood–have found their way into the 15 books he has written: Moments, Shared Moments, Simple Moments, Light Moments, Inquirer Moments, Candid Moments, Just A Moment, Meaningful Moments, Defining Moments, and Happy Moments.
Fr Jerry was born in October 1 1953 in San Carlos City, Pangasinan. He is a member of the Society of the Divine Word (Societas Verbe Divini) or SVD. He was ordained priest in October 25, 1980. He spent four years in South Korea as a missionary. He worked as Mission Director for SVD Philippines until 2014 promoting mission awareness and raising funds for Filipino SVD missionaries abroad.
