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 38 years, the Breslin Fund has helped purchase textbooks and has paid for uncovered medical expenses, emergency travel and other expenses, enabling seminarians to focus on their formation without financial concern.
