Monsignor Alfred Hernandez
Monsignor Alfred Hernandez’s work included chaplaincies at juvenile detention facilities. He was accused in lawsuit filed in October 2014 of repeatedly sexually abusing a 6-year-old boy, who was a first grader at his parish school, in 1993. Hernandez was pastor of St. Ignatius in Highland Park 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 plaintiff said the priest made him read bible passages while sodomizing him. The case was settled in March 2017, but Hernandez had died on 5/26/14.
