Lyke House Heritage

It has been my wish and prayer to be a member of a Catholic church somewhere close to my college, and the Catholic Center at Lyke House has been a dream come true and answered.
Genevieve Cardos, Lyke House Student and Bowman Scholar
Lyke House is more than a building; it’s more than a network or community. It’s a family. We respect and support each other, embrace our differences and use them to grow. But most importantly, we always make it a point to come back home.
Cicily Smith, Lyke House Alumnae
My intention to become a Catholic convert was my deeply felt need, which the Lord provided at the Lyke House while I was a student. I was challenged to learn, grow, work, build relationships, learn the faith, and grow closer and more faithful to Jesus with a lively lot whose memory and support I cherish daily, and always will.
Richard Mazyck, Lyke House Alumnus
