Friar Alessandro, an Italian Franciscan friar and a tenor singer of religious music, performed a Christmas concert at St. Athanasius Church, Bensonhurst, on Dec. 13. He was joined in a duet by local pop singer Charlie Romo. Auxiliary Bishop Raymond Chappetto attended the concert band offered thanks to the Franciscan following his performance. The friar also sang at St. Margaret’s Church, Middle Village (pictured).
