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,

This past weekend’s gospel (John 3:16) is featured at many sporting events!  It’s about love.  As we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Trinity, we receive the invitation to have a special, loving relationship with God.

Mother Teresa penned the “Varanasi Letter” in March, 1993.  Here are some excerpts:

I worry some of you still have not really met Jesus—one-to-one—you and Jesus alone.  We may spend time in chapel—but have you seen with the eyes of your soul how He looks at you with love?

Do you really know the living Jesus—not from books but from being with Him in your heart?  Have you heard the loving words He speaks to you?

How can we last even one day without hearing Jesus say “I love you”?  Impossible.  Our soul needs that as much as the body needs to breathe the air.  If not; prayer is dead.

Bring all you are suffering to His feet—only open your heart to be loved by Him as you are.  He will do the rest.

With love and peace,
Fr. Greg Esty
