Welcome to All Souls Parish
The Presbyterian Church website
Welcome to All Souls Parish/The Presbyterian Church website. All Souls Parish is an open-minded, inclusive, More Light congregation that values questions, affirms LGBTQ+ folks, and welcomes persons of all faiths and no faith at all. We love everyone and strive to nurture the Sacred in ourselves and each person that we encounter along the way. We seek to work justice, practice mercy, and walk humbly in Divine Love. All Souls has a long tradition of outreach and service to its members and the community beyond. We hope you will join us on a Sunday morning at 10am and for fellowship that follows.
Becoming a Minister of Word and Sacrament is a second career for Reverend Genus. She is a Certified Christian Educator and Curriculum Specialist (PCUSA) and served as the Director of Christian Education for 11 years at Presbyterian churches in New Jersey. Although she loved this career, Reverend Genus decided to pursue ministry at the urging of several people. She got her Master of Divinity from New Brunswick Theological Seminary in 2015 and was ordained in 2016. The pastor served as pulpit supply at the Presbyterian Church of Bloomsbury prior to ordination and has served the Osceola Presbyterian Church and the First Presbyterian Church of Atlantic Highlands, all in New Jersey.
Reverend Genus has facilitated the implementation of the Young Children in Worship curriculum in several congregations. Her approach to Christian Education and parish ministry is educating and empowering the entire family, across all generations. The pastor is deeply committed to racial and economic equality for all human beings and investing in building relationships between the church and the local community. She believes that mission work should be hands-on when at all possible.
Reverend Genus has volunteered with the Reformed Church in Highland Park’s visitation ministry for immigrants held in detention as well as in their sanctuary program. She spent time interning at Manna House, a program for homeless women and their children. She is currently a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) volunteer for children who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect.
When we sing, we pray twice.
That is what we believe and practice at All Souls. Our music program is at the very heart of our worship. Each week anthems, hymns, Taizé chants, and instrumental music are all thoughtfully organized
around the sacred texts for that day.
