  • Church of the Holy Cross Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana

    In 1839, Shreveport was an unruly river community. Commerce radiated from the riverfront of what is now downtown. The first Episcopal congregation gathered in an unfinished store on the riverfront, and The Rt. Rev. Leonidas Polk, Bishop of Arkansas, Indian Territory, Texas, Louisiana and Mississippi, celebrated the Eucharist, even as he was threatened by rowdy dock workers who wanted no organized religion invading their town. In the coming years, the parish of St. Mark's was formed and chartered, with its first place of worship built at the corner of Market and Fannin Streets. The Civil War left the little building in poor repair, and in 1905 the parish of St. Mark's moved to their new building at the junction of Cotton Street and Texas Avenue. The people of St. Mark's worshiped in this building almost 50 years before moving to their present location on Fairfield Avenue in 1954.

    Believing the Church should continue to have a presence and ministry in the “inner city,” 126 people of St. Mark's bought the building on Cotton Street and formed The Church of the Holy Cross in 1954.

    As the downtown area continued to decline in population and commerce, the Episcopal Church has responded to a call to minister to those people who have made their homes in the neighborhood: homeless people and indigent people with HIV-AIDS. Today our primary ministry is to our homeless neighbors, serving them in Holy Cross' day shelter, Hope House. Holy Cross is designated a Jubilee Ministry of The Episcopal Church.

    We continue to partner with others in our community to serve the poorest of the poor in our community of Shreveport and Bossier City.
