holycrosschurch-300x258The Church of the Holy Cross, Episcopal, is a diverse urban parish worshiping in a beautiful 106 year old building in downtown Shreveport, Louisiana.

Holy Cross is a Jubilee Ministry of the Episcopal Church. We are active in ministries of social justice, and our primary ministry is to the homeless people who live in our neighborhood.

We value the ministry and worship of our Anglican tradition and of the Episcopal Church. Our worship services follow the Rites of The Book of Common Prayer, Enriching Our Worship, the hymns included in The Hymnal, 1982, and those approved by The Episcopal Church, as well as traditional church music of the ages.

In the Holy Eucharist on Wednesdays at 12:15 we use the supplemental liturgical materials, Enriching Our Worship, approved by The Episcopal Church.
