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.

St Genevieve Church

Fr. Greg's Notes

Dear Friends,

In last weekend’s Gospel (Luke 12:32-48), we hear that people are waning in their faith-giving up.  We are told of the importance of vigilance.  In this present day, we still need to remain vigilant in our faith.  The greatest gift of all is the gift of faith.

We are here with a God-given purpose and we have much to do to fulfill God’s purpose in our life.  But it’s hard.  We live in a time when a lot of people are giving up, not going to church, claiming to be “nones” or “dones.”

I’ve found some books I find helpful in this time.  Think about adding them to your summer reading list:
Why Be Catholic by Fr. Richard Rohr
Why I Am Catholic by Brandon Vogt and
Why Stay Catholic by Michael Leach.

Fr. Greg Esty
