Early life

Orlando Beltrán Quevedo was born on March 11, 1939, in Laoag, Ilocos Norte. Beginning in 1945, he attended grades 1 to 3 in Laoag Shamrock School, and finished grades 4 to 6 in Marbel Central Elementary School in Marbel, South Cotabato, graduating in 1950. He attended Notre Dame High School in Marbel from 1950 to 1954.[1]


Quevedo studied at San José Seminary from 1954 to 1956, but spent his novitiate in St. Peter's Novitiate in Mission, Texas. He earned his degree in Philosophy from San José Seminary in 1960, and in 1964 received his S.T.B. and MA in Religious Education from Oblate College (Catholic University of America) in Washington, D.C.. He was ordained a priest of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Immaculate on June 5, 1964.[1]

In 1964, he was assigned assistant parish priest of Cotabato Cathedral,[1]


Quevedo was appointed Bishop-Prelate of Kidapawan by Pope John Paul II on October 28, 1980.[2] Upon the prelature's elevation to diocese, he assumed the title Bishop of Kidapawan.

On March 22, 1986, he was named Archbishop of Nueva Segovia in Ilocos Sur, and[2] on May 30, 1998, he was named Archbishop of Cotabato.[2]


On January 12, 2014, Pope Francis named Quevedo as one of 19 men to be inducted into the College of Cardinals in the consistory of February 22, 2014, with the titular church of Santa Maria "Regina Mundi" a Torre Spaccata.[3][4] He is the first cardinal from Mindanao[4] and the second current Filipino cardinal-elector, along with Luis Antonio Tagle, Archbishop of Manila.
