Fr. Hugo Rojas - Pastor

Fr. Hugo Rojas. He was born in Tunuyan, Mendoza, Argentina and was ordained to priestly ministry on December 6, 1997.  He served as a missionary for 10 years in Taiwan, in what he describes as a personally enriching experience in opening the Word of the Lord to a new people and their culture in a land that was brand new to him. Fr. Hugo arrived to our Diocese of San Jose in 2008 and was assigned to St. Mary’s Parish, in Gilroy. Five years later and as he tells it, a wonderful experience in that community as well, Fr. Hugo was incardinated formally into our Diocese of San Jose and he moved into a new chapter in his ministry serving our Cathedral Basilica of Saint Joseph until June 2017.

Father Hugo joyfully received Bishop McGrath’s appointment as the third Pastor for Our Lady of Refuge, and his heart is to be at service to the community. Let us all welcome Father Hugo Rojas into our OLR family...
