María del Carmen Hernández Barrera (24 November 1930 – 19 July 2016) was a Spanish Roman Catholic catechist. She was the co-founder of the Neocatechumenal Way. She was born in Ólvega, Spain, but she moved with her family at a very young age to Tudela, Spain where she spent most of her childhood.[1]

During this time, she met Kiko Argüello in Cursillo, and together they formed the Neocatechumenal Way in 1964.[2][3]

Hernández died on 19 July 2016 in Madrid at the age of 85.[4]
