Welcome to 
the Church of 
St. Genevieve

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.


Dear Fellow Parishioners,

I hope you are getting a chance to read Resisting Happiness by Matthew Kelly-the book the Men's Club distributed at Christmas Masses.  The following is taken from Chapter 3:

"Nothing on earth can satisfy your desire for happiness.

     "The reason is very simple: You have a God-size hole.  You cannot fill it with things, money, status, power, sex, drugs, alcohol, other people, experiences, or accomplishments.  Only God can fill the hole.  Throw all the money and possessions in the world into the hole and you will find it still empty and you are still yearning for something more.  Throw an Oscar, a Pulitzer, a Grammy or two, ten or twenty million dollars, and a Nobel Peace Prize into the hole and it will still seem empty.

     "We often make the mistake of hoping that certain people or things will fill the hole, but sooner or later most of us come to realize that only God can fill that hole that represents all our deepest longings.  The hole is bigger than anything this life has to offer, but allowing God to fill it will make everything this life has to offer better."


Allow God in to fill that hole.

 Yours in Christ,
Fr. Greg
