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.

Fr. Greg's Notes

Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!  In Greek, in the New Testament, there are two words for time that are relevant as we transition from the Feast of Christ the King to the new liturgical year that begins with Advent.  The first word is chronos-measured time, as in clocks and calendars.  The second word is kairos-time of opportunity, of transcendance, of experiencing God's loving presence.

We live in chronos time and are invited to experience kairos time.

We have a choice.  Do we choose to live only in chronos time and keep looking at our watches waiting for the present task to end so we can begin the next?  Or do we choose to live in kairos time knowing every day is a gift that God wants to come to us.

What choice will you make during this Advent season?
Fr. Greg Esty
