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,

I have all kinds of questions about God.  "Why is there innocent suffering?"    God is a mystery and I reflect on the words of St. Augustine," If you carefully comprehend it, it's not God."  So I have a lot of questions for God.  I hope I get a chance to ask my questions in heaven.
One thing I do know about God is who God is NOT:  We're not God.  We sometimes project onto the world the way we think the world should be and not consider what God thinks the world should be.
Please listen to part of my weekend homily under "Video" on this page.  We all need to work together to make the Catholic Church a we program and live our lives behaving more like the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
Fr. Greg Esty
