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,

There is a saying in our culture, “If you want something done right, do it yourself.”  Well, Jesus was God.  He could have brought about the kingdom of God to earth all by himself, but He didn’t.  He starts his ministry by choosing people to be His followers.  These chosen people needed to change-give up things, a way of life, habits-in order to follow.

All of you who are baptized have been chosen.  Jesus wants our help to bring about the reign of God. You were not chosen to be entertained or board.  If you are bored, you are not doing what God chose you to do!

What do I think about being chosen to do my part to bringing about justice, truth, peace and love?  What do I need to turn away from or let go to follow the path that God has chosen for me?

Your fellow chosen one,
Fr. Greg Esty
