St. Matthias Church will sponsor a parish mission Nov. 13 to 15 beginning at 7 p.m. each evening at the church, 1200 W. Sprague Road in Parma.

The mission theme "Loving and Forgiving: Beyond the Jubilee of Mercy" will focus on the challenge of reconciliation in our time.

According to The Rev. Lou Papes, the mission preacher, "This parish mission will attempt to bring the Word of God alive in an engaging and creative way."

Ordained for the Diocese of Cleveland in 1988 after 24 years as an educator, Papes is now a priest of the Diocese of Georgetown Guyana.

The parish mission is open to all. For more information, call 440-888-8220.
