Annual event raises funds for friars

On Friday, Oct. 11, the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement held their Platinum 20th Anniversary Sharing Hope Celebration Dinner at the Pierre Hotel in New York City to honor individuals who exemplify the Friars’ charism of unity and At-one-ment and demonstrate Franciscan spirit in their lives by committing time, talents and resources in service to humanity.

This annual event raises funds to support the mission and ministries of the Friars at Graymoor and around the world. 2013 Graymoor Community Service Award winners Michael and Candace Finnegan, front row 4th and 5th from left, celebrate their recognition with Father Bob Warren, SA, and friends and relatives from Garrison and Cold Spring.
