Lyke House Catholic Center at AUC Celebrating Anniversary Weekend

Monsignor Edward Branch

Monsignor Edward Branch stopped by WCLK recently to talk about Lyke House’s 14th Annual Dedication Weekend, October 17-20, 2013.  Lyke House is the Catholic Center for the Atlanta University Center. 

Constructed in October 1999 and named after the late Archbishop James P. Lyke, O.F.M., the Lyke House is a place of worship, a house of African heritage, a liturgical laboratory, and a school of theological literacy.  The facility as it stands now (from 1992-1999 they operated out of a little blue house on James P. Brawley Dr.) reflects the African roots of Catholic Christianity.
