Priest charged with embezzling parish funds

| February 2, 2011

WILMINGTON — The pastor of two Roman Catholic churches has been indicted by a New Castle County grand jury for stealing over $350,000 and trying to cover his tracks by making false entries on the churches' records.

Rev. Cornelius J. Breslin, the pastor of both St. Mary of the Immaculate Conception and St. Patrick, turned himself in at the New Castle County Courthouse this morning.

The indictment comes after a five-month investigation by the Delaware Attorney General’s office after it received a report about suspicious financial activity by the priest from officials with the Roman Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.
