Welcome From the Chaplain

Lyke House is unique in the country.  Its physical structure responds to the Adinkra saying and symbol Sankofa — “Go back and fetch” or remember.  The building and program respond to the call of ancient Africa and its African Christianity to remember our rich past so that we might have a fruitful future.  We call our community in its diversity of Blackness to share the wealth of spirituality the many patrons and cultures its students represent.  We are building on a tradition of Black Catholic Campus ministry in a spirit of Christian love and service.

No matter what your family or personal religious tradition, we invite all to come and share with us.  Whether you seek a listening ear or simply a place to be, pray, or recreate, Lyke House is a Bethany that welcomes you.
