Interior[edit]

The interior of Holy Trinity Catholic Church

The Romanesque Revival interior of the church. Note the Communion Rail, as it is one of the last fully present Communion Rails in a Catholic church in the City of Shreveport. The side Altars are not original to the church. The two Gothic Revival side Altars are from a former church in the area. The church was extensively renovated and restored under Monsignor O'Hanlon starting in the 1970s.[3][4]
