Holy Nativity of the Lord Mission is a community of the Diocese of the South, Orthodox Church in America under the omophorion of His Grace, Bishop Alexander, Bishop of Dallas and of the South.

Together with our two other sister parishes, St. George Greek Orthodox Church and St. Nicholas Antiochian Orthodox Church, the Mission is part of the greater Orthodox Church of over 300 million Christians around the world.

Our Mission, along with the faithful at St. George's and St. Nicholas, is to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the ancient Christian faith, and the traditions of Christ and His apostles to the people of Shreveport and Bossier.

In doing so, we pray that those who join us will experience the fullness of life in Christ and His Church. Learn More about our Mission
