About Us


Lyke HouseThe Catholic Center at AUC

The mission of Lyke House: The Catholic Center at the AUC is to establish spiritual, academic, and faith development for the Atlanta University Center family, with a spirit of Christian love and service in the Catholic tradition of Campus Ministry.

Lyke House responds to three areas of concern which have been at the heart of the Black Catholic Congress: Christian community, heritage and consciousness, and evangelization (the sharing of one’s faith tradition through gospel motivated learning and service). The Center also serves the faith development needs of African, African American, and Caribbean young adults who have come to the institutions of the Atlanta University Center to advance their learning towards responsible participation in national and international life.
