ATLANTA—Lyke House, the Catholic Center at the Atlanta University Center, marked its 16th anniversary with an Oct. 18 Friends and Family Dedication Mass. Archbishop Wilton D. Gregory was the principal celebrant and homilist. It was the archbishop’s first liturgy at Lyke House since Father Urey P. Mark was named Lyke House chaplain earlier this year following the retirement of his predecessor, Msgr. Edward Branch.
In addition to the liturgy, Ashley Morris, Lyke House campus minister and assistant director of the archdiocesan Office for Black Catholic Ministry, received a special plaque for his service to Lyke House and the archdiocese before the closing prayer.
The Mass was followed by a luncheon for family, friends and benefactors. While it has been 16 years since Lyke House was dedicated, there has been a Catholic facility for students on the campus for 24 years.
