Welcome to 
the Church of 
St. Genevieve

The Church of St. Genevieve's was founded as a parish of the Archdiocese of St. Paul in 1853. 

As disciples of Jesus Christ, parishioners are called to worship God, to participate in life-long faith formation and to serve God in our communities.


Dear Friends,     

     "And suddenly there came from the sky a noise like a strong driving wind, and it filled the entire house in which they were" (Acts 2:2).  

     The Holy Spirit's arrival on that first Pentecost was signaled by a rush of wind.  We all know what it's like when our windows are open just as a summer storm rises up.  Curtains fly, papers become airborne, house plants shudder, dust is scattered.  A rush of wind  disrupts the orderliness of our home.  The coming of the Holy Spirit, as celebrated each year at Pentecost, can also disrupt ways that have become comfortable and orderly.  

     The Church always needs Pentecost.  We need the breath of God's Spirit to blow away any complacency or malaise that has settled into our faith.  Jesus breathes on his disciples and they receive the Holy Spirit.  With that reception comes the power to share the Good News of salvation.  Today, this is no less true for us.  

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Greg Esty
