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,     

    On this our Third Sunday of Advent we welcome everyone to the Church of St. Genevieve.  We extend a special welcome to visitors today and an equally special welcome to those who are regulars. We welcome those who are single, married, divorced or gay.  We don't care if you're more Catholic than the Pope or you haven't been to church since little Joey's baptism.  We welcome you if you're having problems, down in the dumps or if you don't like organized religion, we've been there too.  We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both.  If you blew all your money at the casino, worked too hard, don't work, can't spell, or because grandma is in town and wanted you to go to church.  
     Christ is our host here today and Christ Welcomes All!
In the words of Pope Francis, we are at the halfway point in Advent.  The activities and obligations are increasing as we speed closer to Christmas.  How fortunate we are to have Rejoice Sunday to remind us of the Joy all around us.  Take time this week to notice Joy, appreciate the Joy and share the joy.  If we wish to lead a dignified and fulfilling life, we have to reach out to others and seek their good. (Pope Francis The Joy of the Gospel (#9)).

Yours in Christ,

Fr. Greg Esty
