Lyke House: “It’s About 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.
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.
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.

Some years ago the second movie in the Austin Powers franchise introduced the world to “Mini Me,” the clone of his archenemy Dr. Evil. I have often described Ministry Assistants (MA’s) here at Lyke House […]
In the Gospel of Matthew the Scribes and Pharisees considered Jesus as one of them. As far as they knew, he was there to debate the law and its prescriptions. When you become aware, as […]
When these words first tripped off my tongue about 14 years ago, Deacon and Mrs. Fred Sambrone, Merrine McDonald and I didn’t quite know what we meant, at least not exactly. We knew that this […]
Lying prostrate on my living room couch, trying desperately to liberate myself from the throws of the flu-like illness that put me there, I became aware that this event called St. Valentine’s Day was approaching. […]
