RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Barbara Hughes has spent years gathering Hampton Roads faith leaders to discuss their similarities and plot ways to mend differences.

Hughes will spread the concept of unity among these divergent faiths as the new liaison to the Jewish and Muslim communities, under the Catholic Diocese of Richmond. She was named to the post in October.
