        Community, comprised of three newly merged parishes in northwest Rochester, 
        and the four parishes of the Webster-Penfield Catholic Connection are 
        forming a partnership that will strengthen our commitment to prayer, worship, 
        friendship and ministry.<br>
        As a first initiative, the Webster-Penfield parishes will join the Cathedral 
        Community in its recently begun ministry (clothing distribution, tutoring 
        and assistance with an urban farm) to refugees from Burma, now living 
        in the neighborhood. In time, we may work together in other urban (or 
        suburban) ministries.<br>
        But the goal of the partnership is broader than outreach ministry. It 
        is hoped that it will include shared liturgies, an open invitation to 
        events in each other&#145;s parishes, social events, and a general coming-together&#145; 
        to help us understand each other&#145;s needs as city and suburban communities
