Summary of Abuse Allegations against Monsignor Alfred Hernandez:

Monsignor Alfred Hernandez was ordained a priest in 1955, who served in multiple parishes in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. He spent his career working at various juvenile detention facilities, hospitals, and churches. According to media reports, in October 2014, he was named in a civil lawsuit accusing him of repeatedly sexually abusing a 6-year-old boy  who was first grader at St. Ignatius in Los Angeles in 1993. Monsignor Hernandez was pastor at the time, having been there for 18 years when he retired in 1996. 

The suit claimed the boy’s teacher would send him to the rectory, where the abuse occurred. The alleged victim said the priest made him read bible passages while sodomizing him. Monsignor  Hernandez died in 2014. The case was settled in 2017. 

Monsignor Hernandez reportedly spent the final years of his life living and occasionally ministering at Hollenbeck Palms, a convalescent home, in Boyle Heights, California. His whereabouts from his retirement in 1996, until his death are unknown.
