Five UC Banilad Nursing students became a celebrated priest’s “angels” and were featured in his homily, after the girls found and returned the Reverend’s wallet.

Fr. Jerry Orbos, SVD, visited Cebu and was in Gaisano Country Mall. He first bought a bottle of water at the food court and proceeded to purchase some items at the department store when he realized he lost his wallet. With a prayer on his lips, he rushed back to the Foodcourt where five Nursing students, upon seeing him looking like he lost something, inquired and handed him the wallet.

They were Roxanne Conde, Edelyn Flores, Jaquiline Laoron, Daisy Dela Cerna and Liezel Jalang. Much to the Reverend’s relief, the money was intact. In his delight, he invited the female students to his evening mass at the Sacred Heart Parish, where he shared his experience in his homily to the applauding churchgoers.

“I would like to praise and thank the Lord for the meekness and purity of heart of my newfound friends who not only gave me my wallet back, but who also gave me renewed hope and confidence in the youth of our land,” wrote Fr. Orbos in his column, entitled “Try,” published on February 2, 2008 in the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Apart from being a columnist for the Philippine Daily Inquirer, he is also the Missionary Director of the SVD Mission Office, while attending to his radio program on ZNN Veritas.
Fr. Jerry Orbos has written six books, including Moments, Shared Moments, Simple Moments and Light Moments. Fr. Orbos has also made spirituality convenient to the busy world thru Fr. Jerry TXT-A-Moment (through Textdomain’s mobile service), where bible verses, bible reflections, and prayer requests become only a text away.


Student nurse volunteers of CESDEV made use of their free time during the province-wide holiday last August 6, 2008, the Charter Day of the Province of Cebu, to help in the packaging of relief goods for the victims of typhoon Frank in Iloilo City. Clothings, food items, shoes, kitchen wares, blankets, and other useful items were packed by the volunteers. This activity was held at the ABS-CBN Cebu station in Jagobiao, Mandaue City.
