Judge Roger W. Breslin Cornerstone Golf Classic  

Established in 1980, Immaculate Conception Seminary School of Theology's annual golf event bears the name of its founder, the late Honorable Judge Roger W. Breslin, Sr. The proceeds of this event benefit resident seminarians who experience unexpected financial need while they prepare for the priesthood at Immaculate Conception Seminary. Over the past 37 years, the Breslin Fund has helped purchase textbooks and has paid for uncovered medical expenses, emergency travel and other expenses, enabling our seminarians to focus on their formation without financial concern.

The 37th Annual Judge Roger W. Breslin Cornerstone Golf Classic will be held on Monday, June 26, 2017 at the Upper Montclair Country Club located at 177 Hepburn Road in Clifton, NJ.

Welcoming Cardinal Joseph William Tobin, C.Ss.R., Archbishop of Newark

Sister Rose Taylor, L.S.P.Sister Rose Taylor, L.S.P.
Sister Rose Taylor entered the convent with the Little Sisters of the Poor, entering the convent with Our Lady of Good Council, currently known as the St. Jeanne Jugan Residence, in the Bronx. In 1954, she made her Novitiate Profession of Vows.

As one of the Little Sisters of the Poor, Sister Rose Taylor has lived a life of contemplative action, in her service to the residents at St. Joseph's Home for the Elderly in Totowa, NJ, and in the wider community. Throughout the years, many parents and siblings of members of the Immaculate Conception Seminary community, as well as family members of many Seminary benefactors, have been blessed by the loving care of Sister Rose and the Little Sisters of the Poor.

In 2007, Sister Rose accepted a challenging role as director of an apostolate for the seminarians of Immaculate Conception Seminary. Throughout these past 10 years, she has worked with more than 150 seminarians, helping them to develop and practice pastoral skills in preparation for their service as Christ's priests.

Father Martin D. Rooney, M.S.A.Father Martin D. Rooney, M.S.A.
When he was approached by the Seminary to design a Summer Clinical Pastoral Experience program for seminarians, Father Martin Rooney, of St. Joseph's Healthcare System in Paterson, N.J.. recognized the opportunity to serve the charism of his religious order, Missionaries of the Holy Apostles. Six years later, the program he introduced, an eight-week experience during the summer months has exposed over 100 seminarians to situations where patients and families seek spiritual and pastoral support as they encounter life and death in the hospital.

As a comprehensive healthcare system, St. Joseph's allows seminarians serving in their apostolate experience in neonatal, critical, emergency room, geriatric, oncological, hospice, and medical care. 

Many of the skills the seminarians learn from this Clinical Pastoral Experience not only help them to be better ministers to the sick and dying but also prepare them to be more compassionate and effective in their parish ministries.
