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,     

     The Beginning of Everything.  Everyone recognizes the truth of good proverbs and so they endure from generation to generation.  The Russians have a surprisingly bold one that fits this Sunday's Gospel:  "Bread is the beginning of everything."
     Judging from the first reading, Elijah might have felt that it was too late for bread - too late for life itself.  This great prophet was at the end of his rope and endurance.  Then, not one, but two angels visit him.  One offers food and drink.  The other gives startling directions.  For Elijah this food from the angels is  bread for his journey. On the strength of the heaven sent gift of foot, he walks to the mountain of God.
     In today's Gospel, Jesus offers himself, not just as bread for the journey, but as bread for life itself.  He gives his flesh as life for the world.  "I am the bread of life" (John 6;48).  He is the beginning of everything. 

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Greg Esty
