the knowledge of Bishop Anthony M. Pilla of the Diocese of

facilitate the taking of pilgrims on Catholic pilgrimages throughout
Europe, Mexico and the Holy Land. The Catholic Tour is
dedicated our Our Lady of Fatima.
Mr. and Mrs. Adair are the parents of eight children
and the grandparents of twelve.
