About St. George Greek Orthodox Church:

The church was founded by Greek immigrants from New Ephesus. The first services were held in 1917 on the second floor of a building on Texas Street in downtown Shreveport. Later, as the church grew, services were moved to St. Mark’s Episcopal Church; and then to a house which the church community purchased on Hope Street. The present church on Creswell Avenue was constructed in 1935. The sanctuary was enlarged and extensively remodeled in 2009. Over the past few years, new Byzantine iconography was added to the interior of the church. Mosaic icons were added to the exterior of the building in May, 2017
