Loving God, We come to you in thanksgiving, knowing all that we are and all that we have is a gift from you.  Open our eyes that we may see the lavishness of your love.  Open our ears that we may hear where we can help.  Open our hearts that we may be bonded together as a community of faith, a caring people, who bear witness to your love in our lives.  We pray in Jesus' name.  Amen.


Terri Moore
Cantor and Music Ministry
Small Group Participant

I first started serving because I was asked and I felt God’s nudge to act.  Before I knew it, I became involved in many roles of the church.  Not only did I enjoy these opportunities, but I loved the people I was able to be with. Years have passed and I’m still involved in some of my favorite ministries, but my greatest joy now is seeing my family serving, too.  God blesses us with talents and our best way to tell Him thank you is to use them.

Serving as a Eucharist Minister allows me to be an active participant in sharing this most precious gift with others. I strongly encourage others to consider serving in this role.

Usher, Lector
Faith Formation Advisory

I love to help volunteer and serve our community; It helps me get to know the parishioners better and I feel more connected to the church and community.  Jesus always calls us to be active in our faith, to be there for our neighbor and help those in need.  I feel volunteering at St. Gens has brought me so much closer to God and to my faith.  It has also helped my kids to be fully active in the church community.  They are excited to go to church and to help whenever needed.
