[Mono-osx] CoreText Paragraph Alignment

I am trying to develop an application with CoreText.  I can successfully
render text to my frame but cannot figure out how to set paragraph style
attribute for text alignment.  I am working from CoreTextArcMonoMac example. 
I have made modifications to draw text into a frame instead of an arc.  Now
I want to set the alignment to Center.  I may be missing something obvious
but I can't seem to figure out how to set the paragraph style attributes. 
The code below is creates my attributed string.

private NSAttributedString AttributedString {
      get {
        NSParagraphStyle style = new NSParagraphStyle();
	NSObject[] objects = new NSObject[] { Font, (NSNumber)0, style};
        NSObject[] keys = new NSObject[] {

        NSDictionary attributes = NSDictionary.FromObjectsAndKeys (objects,
        NSAttributedString attrString = new NSAttributedString (Title,
        return attrString;

What I can't work out is how to set the alignment of the paragram style?

Any help appreciated.
