Holy Trinity Catholic Church announces acquisition of former Greyhound bus station

During Holy Trinity Catholic Church’s anniversary mass held on September 26, the bishop of the Diocese of Shreveport, The Most Rev. Francis Malone, and Rev. Duane C. Trombetta, announced the church’s real estate acquisition of the former Greyhound bus station. The old bus station is located at 408 Fannin Street in downtown Shreveport, directly across from the church’s parking lot.

“Within the densely developed downtown Shreveport, opportunities for contiguous property expansion are not common,” stated Rev. Duane C. Trombetta in a public statement. “Our first goal was to make the acquisition while it remained a possibility.” He went on to explain that they would work with the Diocese of Shreveport and newly assembled committees to study potential uses for the property. The building’s unique mid-century architecture and its historic significance to Shreveport will be top of mind during these deliberations.

The old bus station contains 12,600 square feet and once held a terminal, ticket office, restaurant, freight operation, and administrative offices. It was constructed in 1947 and has been vacant since Greyhound relocated the SporTran Intermodal Terminal to 400 Crockett St. in November 2017.

“By the grace of God, our parish is experiencing exciting growth and spiritual reinvigoration right here in downtown Shreveport.”
