Thank You

The Father Tolton’s Play at the Lyke House was a great success

It was well attended, very inspiring, and an epic way to celebrate the Solemnity of All Saints and begin Black Catholic History Month. This was a Transcendental moment because the Play epitomizes Fr. Tolton’s life and the way he brings out the best in our humanity even in the worst circumstances of life. An important element for his Cause for Canonization and the inspiration of vocation.
The Lyke House is truly blessed to have had the First Showing and welcome the Tolton Play to the Archdiocese of Atlanta. I am loving it. - Fr. Mark.

Welcome Back.

We are so delighted to welcome you Back to School. In a special way we welcome the first year class of 2026, the sophomore class of 2025, the junior class of 2024 and yes the graduating senior class of 2023!!!
Father Mark is very excited to welcome back Dr. Kevin Johnson as the Director for Music and the Bowman Scholar Program at the Lyke House.

We thank Dr. Johnson for his love and commitment to musical excellence for our collegians in higher education, as well as, the gift of himself and artistry to the Lyke House Ministry.

“I am extremely excited to be back at the Lyke House as Director of Music. Fr. Mark and I share a passion for the ministry of the Lyke House and are planning a very exciting and productive academic year for us all. As we prepare for our trip to Rome, let us all commit ourselves to representing Lyke House, black people everywhere, the diversity of our students at Georgia State and the Archdiocese of Atlanta in an amazing and inspiring way. I know that our year together in ministry will reap a harvest of blessings for ourselves and others.”
