Lovers of sacred music and choral music are in for a treat on Sunday April 27 at 7pm at the Martin Luther King, Jr. International Chapel on the campus of Morehouse College. An Evening of Song is the title of a program that will feature the soaring voices of the Wendell P. Whalum Community Chorus, the combined Spelman and Morehouse College Glee Clubs, the Clark Atlanta University Philharmonic Society, and the Sister Thea Bowman Scholars from the Lyke House, the Catholic Center for the AUC.
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.
