Hugh Fyfe and Mary Casterella Co-Chair "Sunset on the Hudson" to Benefit Ministries of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement

July 2016

Hugh Fyfe and his wife Mary Casterella co-chaired the seventh annual “Sunset on the Hudson” benefit to help support the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. Bleakley Platt was proud to be a Gold Sponsor for the event, which raises funds to benefit the various ministries of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement, a Roman Catholic order of brothers and priests. The event took place at X20 – Xavier’s on the Hudson

The ministries affiliated with the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement include the Do Not Fear to Hope program, the first HIV/AIDS support group in the Hudson Valley, which was founded more than thirty years ago and St. Christopher’s Inn, which provides more than 1,200 men every year with food, clothing, shelter, alcohol and drug addiction counseling and healthcare services.

The order was founded at Graymoor in Garrison, New York in 1898 by Father Paul Wattson, SA, who has been endorsed for canonization by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
