Fr. Victor Hernando
Appointed To Sierra Parish in Oakhurst, CA.

The Most Rev. Joseph Brennan has appointed Fr. Victor Hernando as Administrator of the Our Lady of the Sierra Parish, Oakhurst, California.  The appointment is effective on September 1.


“It is time to spread your wings, ” said Rev. Msgr Raymond Dreiling, Vicar General of the Diocese of Fresno. Fr. Hernando has been the co-pastor of Good Shepherd Catholic Parish for the past five and a half years, serving as a strong foundation for father’s new assignment.


“I can say that those years of working and living with you, one way of the other you revered me, loved me, tolerated me, and/or cursed me,” said Fr. Hernando. “They happened and I pray that with the enlightenment from our Pastor, Alex Chavez, and Jesus Christ, it enriched your relationship with our Mother Church.  It serves as an invitation to continue to pray for your priests, especially the priest who made a stopover in your parish and who visited you in your heart.”


May the Lord bless you and keep you.

May the Lord smile on you and be gracious to you.
May the Lord show you His favor and give you His peace.

-Numbers 6:24-26
